In 1863, 14 students risked education from Kansas State Agricultural 
College, the nation's first land- grant university. In 2003, after two years 
of 20-percent tuition increases, K- State broke its enrollment record for 
the fifth consecutive year with 23,050 students. 

Students, faculty and staff evolved through experiences in academic, 
social and personal settings. 

"It is a place where students and faculty develop balance," Michael 
Holen, College of Education dean, said. "Sometimes people get unbal- 
anced with too much academics or too many social events. At K- State, 
students and faculty do a good job to find out what's important to be 
well-rounded individuals." 

Students applied classroom fundamentals through hands-on experi- 
ence on projects and assignments. Architecture majors spent hours in 
studio focusing on miniature details while constructing models for class 

Eighty percent of the education gained at K- State did not come from 
the classroom, said Pat Bosco, vice president of institutional advance- 
ment and dean of student life. Sporting events, organizations and com- 
munity living provided diverse opportunities for involvement. 

On GameDay Fridays, whether the Wildcats were ranked No. 6 or 
were out of the polls, purple permeated the community in support of 
athletes and K- State pride. Even when the starting quarterback and run- 
ning back fell to injuries, fans continued to fill KSU Stadium to support 
the Cats. 

Students also united through similar interests by joining campus 
organizations. The Organizations Carnival allowed students to talk with 
club leaders to determine what groups suited them best.

"Involvement is one of the key factors," said Jennifer Bakumenko, 
Student Governing Association Executive Chief of Staff and senior in 
management. "I think it is important for students to be involved, both 
for themselves and the university. The organizations and different living 
environments — residence halls, greek houses and off campus — all 
enhance the social aspect that prepares students with life skills to use in 
the future." 

Living groups provided social activities balanced with a productive 
academic atmosphere. Fraternities and sororities stressed the practice 
of good study habits through GPA requirements and mandatory study 
hours, while giving members interactive opportunities to serve the com- 
munity and personally grow and develop. 

Aaron Siders, Interfraternity Council president and senior in man- 
agement, said the kinds of students who came to K- State did not just 
happen — K- State attracted active students who continually pushed the 
bounds of excellence. 

"It all comes down to the students and faculty," he said. "K- State is 
very undergraduate -driven in terms of who puts programming together 
and who makes the decisions. There is a lot of empowerment of under- 
graduates. It is very unique." 

Through student legislation and student fess, the SafeRide program 
provided safe transportation for students who frequented social gather- 
ings in Aggieville and needed a ride home. 

Although pursuit of higher education brought students to campus 
— experiences, relationships and pride marked their transition to 
K- Staters. 

"It is the long tradition of students to alumni that is the personality 
and culture of the university," Terry King, College of Engineering dean, 
said. "Administrators come and go. Faculty come and go. It is the day 
they first become a student that they, K- State students, are the corner- 
stone. They are the university. Without them, we wouldn't exist."

Outside academic responsibilities, students enhanced their education through 
campus events, personal relationships and interactive activities. 

Traditional events reflected the personality of K- State spirit. In its sixth year, 
Mud Volleyball Day, during K- State -Salina's Wildcat Welcome Week, attracted hun- 
dreds of students to spend the afternoon wrestling in the slippery mud. 

When organized events were not available, students invented activities to fill 
their time. Wanting a physical activity and a little roughness, a group of friends 
started informal boxing matches, which ballooned to more than 100 Marlatt Hall 
residents in two weeks. 

The university experience stretched the bounds of academia to include personal 
and social awareness. 

A group of 29 students formed the backbone of the KSU Marching Band for 
GameDay performances. Dedicated to practice and professionalism, drum line 
members formed close friendships with each other. 

Student activities reflected individual personalities and a collective pride for the

muHpies and all 

In the pit, Christopher 
Laws, junior in airway 
science, laughs as he is cov- 
ered in mud by his friends 
during Mud Volleyball Day 
at K-State-Salina. The event 
was part of Wildcat Wel- 
come Week. "It was one 
very cool time," Laws said. 
"It was a great way to get 
out, let loose and get dirty. 
This is the third year I've 
gone and this was definitely 
the best one yet." Photo by

In a parched field on the K- State -Salina campus, Smoky Hill 
Construction workers created a muddy oasis — dumping nearly 60,000 
gallons of water to create a mud-volleyball pit. 

"They had to plow it but the till wouldn't go in it was so dry," said 
Shana Warkentine Meyer, assistant director of advancement of student 
life. "It took about four truckloads of water to get the mud ready." 

The mud pit was created for Mud Volleyball Day, Aug. 24, during 
Wildcat Welcome Week. 

"This is one of our favorites for the wel- 
come week," David Swanson, senior in airway 
science, said. "We try to do new stuff each year, 
but we keep bringing mud volleyball back." 

The festivities included T-shirt tie-dying 
and whipped-cream pie making. Stacks of 
piecrusts sat ready for students to fill with 
whipped cream and chocolate syrup. Many of 
the pies were thrown at students in the volley- 
ball pit, rather than consumed. 

"The worst part was when I got hit in the 
face with a pie," Lindsey Boeckman, freshman in professional pilot, said, 
"and that was right after I got thrown in the mud by five guys." 

Mud-soaked players scrambled after the slippery ball as it sailed 
over the net, but they rarely made contact. 

The ball frequently lay unnoticed in the mud as the players wrestled. 
"My favorite thing was rolling around in the mud with my friends," 
Amanda Wagner, sophomore in airway science, said. Michael Sekavec, 
freshman in professional pilot, added, "It was sloppy and irresistible." 
Muddy players dragged unsuspecting bystanders into the mess. 
"I just came to watch," Kelly Carrico, admissions office counselor, 
said. "Then I was surrounded by four students who proceeded to throw 
me in, in my good clothes. I want reimbursement for the cleaning bill." 

In spite of the mess, mud volleyball was reputed as being the most 
popular event of Wildcat Welcome Week. 

"I love the camaraderie," Anthony Foster, junior in computer science 
technology, said. "We really get everyone out for this event. The other 
events are fun, but mud volleyball gets everyone's attention."

Echoing through KSU Stadium, the regimented and synchronized 
sounds of the drum line resounded before the pre -game ceremonies. 

The 29 -member squad marched once around Wagner Field 30 minutes 
before kickoff. 

Derrick Lund, sophomore in mass communication, said it was one way 
to get fans pumped for the game. 

Lund, who was on a drum line since his high school freshman year, 
said he enjoyed performing before home football games. 

"Pre-game is the best," he said, "especially when KU's going to be in 
town and when we play Wabash, because everyone 
is fired up." 

The "Wabash Cannonball" involved clapping 
while leaning forward and backward repeatedly. 
"We tell freshmen, 'don't look at the crowd,'" 
Jefferey Hewitt, senior in music education, said. 

The drum line offered opportunities to make 
friends and build lasting relationships. 

"Being on drum line is a chance for me to 
build relationships with people who enjoy doing 
the same thing," Jennifer Cordell, freshman in secondary education, said. 
"We all love to play." 

Cordell, who originally played clarinet and was a drum major in high 
school, switched to drum line when she came to K- State. 

"I had the option of going back to the clarinet," she said. "The drum 
line had always appealed to me because they're a close-knit group and I 
enjoy percussion." 

Cordell, who played bass drum No. 3, said her only complaint was sore 
muscles after playing due to the drum's weight and large size. 

"I don't like having a sore back and calluses all the time," she said. 
"(But) I like all of it. I don't notice the bad stuff because I love it." 
She said her hard work to become part of the drum line paid off. 
"Playing at the football games is probably the best experience I've had 
up here so far," she said. "I love the crowd and how supportive our school 
is of the team. It's fun to be part of the rally."

"Fundamental Canoeing" was offered through UFM for one credit 
hour at the River Pond Area in Tuttle Creek State Park. 

"I think I gained a definite appreciation for nature through the 
canoeing course," Audrea Westfall, sophomore in open- option, said. "It 
really opened my eyes to nature like I hadn't seen before, especially in 
this area." 

Fundamental Canoeing covered the proper techniques for perform- 
ing four, basic paddle strokes; emphasizing, analyzing and refining 
stroke techniques; proper paddle -sizing; and boat control. 

"It was a great pleasure to be exposed to people so much younger 
than I am," Charlie Burgess, instructor, said. "They were all most 
respectful and I was extremely proud to be a part of their life that week." 

Students learned canoe nomenclature, river safety, canoe rescue 
techniques, communication signals and how to use river currents to 
their advantage. 

"Canoeing was really cool because we got to see some eagles and 
other animals in nature," Clayton Issitt, freshman in business adminis- 
tration, said. "The hardest part about canoeing was trying to get in and 
out of the boats." 

Burgess, and his wife, owned Kansas River Outfitters, a business 
that sold camping gear and rented canoes, kayaks and other outdoor 

Burgess began teaching canoeing through his business when he 
started advising people who wanted to canoe or kayak in the sum- 
mers. That evolved to lessons for Shawnee County Park and Recreation 
Summer Camp, scout and church groups and then the K- State class. 

Burgess first started canoeing 50 years ago with his father. He saw 
canoeing as an excellent hobby and the only place to experience com- 
plete freedom. 

"I would definitely recommend this class to other people," Westfall 
said. "It was a different kind of learning experience everyone should 
have. It was hands on, fun to learn about nature and something you can 
do for the rest of your life."

With nothing but energy to burn, time to kill and a set of boxing 
gloves, a small group of Marlatt Hall residents began an impromptu 
boxing tournament. 

"A couple of guys down the hall got out their gloves," John Becker, 
freshman in open- option, said. "Then another guy, Clayton Lidgett, 
knew how to ref, so we just decided to organize a little something to take 
out some aggression." 

Common sense ruled the simple matches: one-minute rounds, 30 
seconds between each round and the fight ended at the first sight of 
blood, Becker said. 

"And we let everyone know that if they got hurt, they were the ones 
who volunteered," he said. "So it wasn't anyone else's fault." 

The small group of fighters quickly grew into a crowd of hundreds. 
"People just started volunteering to fight," Lidgett, freshman in 
architectural engineering, said. "People saw what we were doing out 
their windows and came downstairs to fight." 

Members of the crowd issued challenges to one another, set up 
matches and added another dimension to the event, Stevy Townsel, 
freshman in art, said. 

"That dude kept challenging me," Townsel said. "He kept on chal- 
lenging me. I beat him though — dude quit after the first round." 

The event was such a big hit that Becker and Lidgett decided to have 
matches once a week, Wednesdays at 9 p.m., but the idea was short lived. 

"About halfway through the third night, we had the police show 
up," Lidgett said. "They said they had gotten complaints from a bunch 
of people and that unless we had a permit and crowd control, the whole 
thing was illegal." 

The police told the students they were disturbing the peace and were 
guilty of battery, disorderly conduct and unlawful assembly, Becker said. 

"When we first started the whole thing, we asked our R.A. (Tyler 
Van Slyke) if it was all right," Lidgett said. "He took it to the Hall Gov- 
erning Board and they voted that it was all right. But apparently the 
cops didn't agree." 

The students were issued a warning by the police and were told to 
cease the weekly fights. 

Becker and Lidgett said they looked into getting a permit and start- 
ing a boxing club but the impromptu Wednesday fight nights were 
postponed indefinitely.

What was frequently off-limits became an opportunity for students 
younger than 21 to enter the bar scene. Opened in August, Shotz Bar & 
Grill featured the band Ten Till Blue and allowed those 18 and older to 
enter for designated events. 

"The fact that there was a band playing is what drew me into the 
bar," Alicia Davignon, freshman in modern languages, said. "Also, the 
fact that they were letting 18 and older in, I figured it would be a good 
opportunity to go, whereas I wouldn't be able to go otherwise." 

The alternate layout benefited patrons wanting to socialize, Davi- 
gnon said. 

"I thought that it was a lot roomier than other bars — it wasn't 
cramped or anything," Davignon said. "It was nice because they had the 
stage separated from the tables, so you could have room to sit down and 
talk if you wanted or join others at the stage without bothering those 
sitting down." 

Melanie Gruber, freshman in apparel marketing and design, said she 
liked the open design of the bar. 

"It seemed a lot more advanced than other bars, not just a hole in the 
wall," Gruber said. "They had a nice dance floor. It wasn't just a nasty bar." 

Shotz replaced the western themed Longhorn's Waydown Lounge. 

"(Shotz) really was a neat atmosphere," Davignon said. "It was 
really crowded, a popular place to go. It seemed like there were so many 
people. I think they have good entertainment there withought being 
cramped. I felt as if I could actually move around." 

The appearance was not the only appealing part about the bar, the 
entertainment also delighted students who stood in the front row and 
yelled for the band, Gruber said. 

For those of drinking age, non- traditional beverage containers dis- 
tinguished Shotz from other bars. 

"I did notice that they had these shots in little test-tube glasses, 
which were kind of cool, and they passed them around," Davignon said. 
"I thought that was really unique about the bar." 

After opening, Shotz experimented with parties where machines 
covered the bar area and patrons in foam. 

"I've heard about the foam parties," Grant Klingenberg, sophomore in 
agricultural economics, said. "They sound wild. I've heard the foam gets 
really high and you almost suffocate, but that's part of the fun, right?"

Al Franken 

signs books, 

oes stand-up 

by Jacob Walker 

fills McCain 

Al Franken's appearance at McCain Auditorium, Nov. 7, was not 
politically correct. Saturday Night Lives own political satirist did not 
spare a single word before starting his comedic attack. 

After being introduced, his first words were, 'Are there any Phelpses 
here?" in reference to the leader of the "God Hates Fags" movement, 
Fred Phelps, who picketed his performance at the University of Kansas. 

Franken said Phelps admitted he thought Franken was funny, even if 
Phelps was against everything Franken stood for. 

In his methodical manner, Franken poked fun at everything from 
the possible usefulness of the elderly in military or space programs to 
the Christian Coalition and Jerry Falwell. Franken said Falwell saved 
his career in the days following the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. 

"The best part was when he went over the plans for the elderly and 
the military," Chad Howard, junior in theater, said. "It was so wrong, 
but just so funny." 

Franken also plugged his new book, "Lies and the Lying Liars Who 
Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right," and the lawsuit filed 
against him by the Fox News Network over his use of the "Fair and Bal- 
anced" slogan. 

Franken said the paperback edition of his book included the court 
case transcript. He said it should be titled "A Lawyer's Nightmare," since 
the case was literally laughed out of the courtroom. 

One of Franken's strengths was his knowledge of politics and current 
events, Howard said. 

"I've always been a fan of his work," he said. "But the thing about his 
stuff is how smart it is. He always knows what he's talking about and he 
never makes fun of you until he's done his research." 

The audience's reaction to Franken's material was enthusiastic 
— one reason he enjoyed visiting colleges, he said. 

"I always prefer going to schools like this rather than a corporate 
function," Franken said. "There, I have to follow different rules and 
kind of watch what I say. Here, I can do things with more freedom, and 
everyone enjoys it more. Here, it gets to be comedy, which everyone 
loves. Everyone loves to laugh."

administration, during their term in office. 

Although they shared an office and an apartment, Stryker said they 
were rarely in the same place at the same time. 

"We have not seen each other much at home and we're almost never 
in the office at the same time," he said, "but we can always find each 
other. We're going in different directions throughout the day so we'll try 
to get together at the end of the day to catch up." 

While working on university projects, O'Hara said constant com- 
munication was necessary to keep each other informed. 

"We kind of work together on everything, but one of us is in charge 
of the project," Stryker said. "We both help each other out. We're big 
into teamwork and having multiple ideas." 

Althoff said the duo's differences strengthened their working relationship. 

"Travis is more logical," he said. "As an engineering type, he's 
very analytical. John is more emotional. He looks at the effects for the 
people. It really blends well. A lot of what they deal with is two-sided 
— there is a logistical side that Travis understands and John looks at 
how an issue will affect the students. It helps them do great things." 

Students in different colleges, O'Hara and Stryker related to a greater vari- 
ety of student issues because their combined experiences covered more areas, 
Stryker said. He said they used varying experiences to watch each other's back. 

"We play devil's advocate to each other," Stryker said. "I can't think 
of something we truly have opposite views on. We do have a friendship 
and that is most important. We question each other's ideas about where 
we're headed and what actions to take. We know not to let something 
break up our friendship. I think a true friend questions everything to 
make sure you do the right thing." 

Althoff said O'Hara and Stryker's actions reflected their commitment. 

"They care a lot," he said. "If they have bad days. . .sometimes they 
are worried they didn't do a good-enough job. They take things seri- 
ously. They are passionate individuals." 

In their apartment, O'Hara 
and Stryker watch a news 
program. O'Hara and 
Stryker agreed living 
together benefitted their 
working relationship. 
"It all began with the foun- 
dation of friendship we had 
established," O'Hara said. 
"Through living with Travis, 
I am now able to anticipate 
what he's thinking and I am 
better able to understand 
his perspective." Photo by

shuttle takes international students 


( i

For most K- State students, 
going home required only a short 
drive. However, the cities interna- 
tional students called home were 
thousands of miles away. 

Booking a flight to go home 
for winter break was relatively 
easy, but the students had to find 
an affordable way to get to Kansas 
City International Airport. 

The International Rides pro- 
gram was one option international 
students had for free transporta- 
tion to and from Kansas City, Mo. 

"I've taken the KCI Road- 
runner several times, and, one 
time, I was really close to being 
late," said Elsa Ariesanti, graduate 
student in mechanical engineering 
and international student from 
Indonesia. "This is definitely a 
good alternative." 

The International Rides Pro- 
gram's first trip was Dec. 17. Mary 
Beth Cook, graduate research 
assistant in the International Pro- 
grams office, said the late start was 
accredited to a lack of funds. 

"The idea has been bounced 
around for years, but the office 
could not afford to have a ser- 

vice," Cook said. "The Student 
Senate last year passed the Global 
Education Initiative. This initia- 
tive is aimed at providing study 
abroad scholarships to current 
Kansas State students and to 
provide transportation to welcome 
international students to our 

K- State students drove inter- 
national students to KCI in vans. 

Kelly Thacker, Jardine Terrace 
Apartments assistant coordinator 
and graduate student in student 
counseling and personal services, 
helped Cook drive the shuttle. 

"What appealed to me about 
the program was the fact that 
every day I am working with a 
large portion of the international 
and non-traditional student 
population on the K- State campus 
through my work at Jardine," 
Thacker said, "And often they are 
the forgotten students. Everyone 
throughout Jardine, K- State and 
the international community has 
shown me so much unconditional 
love, acceptance and understand- 
ing that I strive to make their lives 
just a little bit easier and try to be 

one more person to advocate for 
their needs. This is just one more 
way I can share my times and 

As an out-of-state student, 
Thacker said she had a better 
understanding of the importance 
of reliable transportation. 

"I understand the issues and 
problems with driving to the 
airport," she said. "I cannot even 
fathom being from another coun- 
try and having to find my own 
transportation for my family to 
and from an airport that is a two- 
hour car ride away." 

Cook said international stu- 
dents were important to the uni- 
versity and gave domestic-born 
students a chance to learn about 
other ways of life. 

"I believe that international 
students bring an incredible 
amount of strength to our uni- 
versity - academically, financially 
and most importantly, cultur- 
ally," Cook said. "All Kansas State 
students can benefit from know- 
ing people from around the world 
from people who do things and 
think differently than they do."

ways to 

When students looked for affordable textbooks, they had several 
available avenues. 

Most students purchased textbooks through Varney's Book Store or 
the K- State Student Union Bookstore, but others found different venues 
for buying and selling textbooks. 

Dave Sattler, sophomore in mechanical engineering, said he purchased 
half of his books directly from students who previously completed the classes. 

"I prefer getting books from students because it saves everyone 
money," he said. "Usually you can buy books for 60 percent of Varney's 
prices and sell for 50 percent." 

Sattler also tried to sell textbooks through the Book Exchange wall 
in the K-State Student Union. Students advertised books for sale or 
books wanted on colored cards at the exchange wall. 

Sattler did not receive any responses for the calculus book he posted, 
but said he thought the wall was beneficial. 

Kristi Ogorzolka, sophomore in business administration, joined to find cheap textbooks. was a Web 
site created fall 2003 by Brett Beam, junior in industrial engineering; 
Branden Comfort, junior in business administration, and Ross Wilson, 
sophomore in computer engineering. 

"It's something people do at other universities," Wilson said. "It was 
something K- State didn't have. Most students are online anyway. If they 
are online, they might as well buy books." 

The site was set up as an electronic message board for students to 
post books for sale and others could post responses. Although access to 
the site was free, students registered with site administrators to ensure 
they were K- State students. As of Feb. 3, there were 646 members. 

Wilson said he thought there were more than 175 books sold 
through the site in its first year. Ogorzolka joined the site, Nov. 29, and 
posted two message inquiries about books for sale. 

"I saw a flier and figured I'd look at it," she said. "I found a couple of 
books that I could use and bought one of them." 

Ogorzolka spent $15 on her book, and Wilson said most users would 
sell for half of the bookstores' prices. 

"They get an equal price selling and buying," he said. "It is a win- 
win situation."

cash. Dan Walter, textbook 
manager at Varney's Book 
Store, said the store paid 
close to 50 percent on 
textbooks until the store's 
quota was filled, then the 
percentage decreased or 
textbooks were no longer 
accepted. He said students 
on average could spend 
between $400 and $500 
on textbooks each semester.

Handling the antics of inebriated customers, pouring drinks with 
provocative -sounding names and finishing work at 2:30 a.m., were all in 
a night's work for student bartenders. 

In her two and a half years waitressing and bartending at Rusty's 
Last Chance Restaurant and Saloon, January Fanning, 
senior in interior design, said she saw all kinds of human 

"At least once a week we have to kick somebody out 
because they're annoying everyone," Fanning said. "Noth- 
ing surprises me anymore." 

Fanning typically worked the late shift twice a week. She 
said her time behind the bar taught her to have patience. 

"You have to deal with a lot of different people," Fanning 
said. "You get your drunk people, and you get your people 
who come in and think it's a restaurant and want you to have 
high class service. Bartending takes a lot of patience." 

Before being promoted to bartender, Fanning wait- 
ressed at Chance. 

Fellow bartender Jamie Stewart, senior in finance, also 
began as a waitress. Both said they preferred bartending to 

"When you're behind the bar and somebody's annoying you, you 
can choose to walk away," Stewart said. "One thing I didn't like about 
waitressing was all the groping." 

Although bar employees sometimes worked in unfavorable condi- 
tions, Stewart and Fanning said the money and friendships they formed 
made their job worth it. 

"I've met a lot of people that are my good friends now," Stewart said. 
"Working there this long, you know everybody. It's like one big family." 

Having hardworking and friendly employees was the key to success, 
Rusty Wilson, owner of five Aggieville bars, said. 

"That's why Last Chance has been so successful," Wilson said. "It's 
because of hiring good people. Your people need to have creative ideas." 

Wilson gave his employees creative freedom in his bars. They had 
input on advertising, promotions and T-shirts. 

"Some of the girls have shirts that say 'Rusty Girl' on them," Wilson 
said. "One night, they had something saying, 'Show us your tips.'"

Chance on a busy Thursday 
night, January Fanning,

she had dealt with all kinds

and a half years working 
at Chance. "I had one guy 
kicked out because he was 
yelling that Last Chance 
sucked at 5 o'clock on a 
Friday night," Fanning said.

a safe way to 

by Jenny Shoemaker 


When students went out for a night filled with drinks and parties, 
they took coats, cash and student IDs, but thanks to SafeRide, car keys 
were optional. 

SafeRide, a program started by the Office of Student Activities and 
Services to prevent students from drinking and driving, provided free 
transportation for students and friends. 

"(A student) calls the number, (and) they will ask where you're at, 
and where you're going," Ashleigh Moffat, freshman in journalism and 
mass communications, said. "They take you home as long as one person 
in the group has a student ID." 

SafeRide's goal was to reduce the number of drunk drivers and 
the consequences of driving while under the influence, Holly Schaper, 
junior in medical technology, said. 

"We were drinking, and it's not good to drink and drive," Moffat 
said. "(SafeRide) keeps people from getting behind the wheel and caus- 
ing an accident." 

Introducing SafeRide was a benefit to the community because it 
picked up students and kept them off the roads, Bryan Brinkman, junior 
in horticulture, said. 

"You don't want anyone on the roads after drinking," Brinkman 
said. "It's dangerous and stupid. With SafeRide, there is no excuse." 

Students had to follow rules to use the program — no more than 
four students per car, a student ID had to be shown and the persons 
riding had to be going home and live within city limits. 

"There are no questions asked," Brinkman said. "They pick you up, 
and you don't have to worry about someone, like friends or parents, 
coming to pick you up or having to pay, because it's free." 

SafeRide operated Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 11 p.m. to 3 
a.m., which, Schaper said, was when most students went out. 

"It's a program that gives students a safe way home from a party or 
a bar, so they don't have to have a friend drive or drive themselves home 
drunk," Schaper said. "You're guaranteed a safe way to get home."

Family Weekend — for two days, families had the opportunity to visit 
campus and spend time with their students. 

With a variety of events and activities, each family celebrated the week- 
end in a unique way. Families toured campus, took students out to eat and 
went shopping at area hot spots, Aggieville, Manhattan Town Center and 
the K- State Union Bookstore. 

The Szczucinski's started their day at Cox Bros BBQ for lunch. Whitney 
Szczucinski, freshman in elementary education, and her parents discussed 
the beneficial college preparation she received. 

"Having a sister who has already completed college was helpful and 
my having been in law school when she was young was probably helpful," 
Susan Szczucinski, Whitney's mother, said. "At least with Jenny (Whitney's 
sister) and I as role models, and her father and I stressing the importance 
of education all of her life, we knew she'd be fine." 

After lunch, the Szczucinski's shopped at Target for residence hall sup- 
plies including a crock-pot and laundry detergent. Then they visited the 
K- State Union Bookstore to gear up with purple apparel. 

Afterward, they returned to Whitney's room in Moore Hall to relax. Their 
conversations consisted of current events, college and things back home.

The Szczucinski's agreed it was much quieter around the house with

"We miss her of course, but this should be good for all of us to appreciate 
Jeanel Drake each other more and not take each other for granted," Susan said. 

The family ended their day with dinner at Harry's Downtown. 

"It was really nice to have my family come down because I hadn't seen 
them since the day they moved me in," Whitney said. "They finally had

K- State became home to students, faculty and staff. Each 
person's university experience was unique, but unity was found 
in events that relayed a statement about the personality of the 

The agricultural roots of the university, the influence of a 
strong leader and the loyalty of graduates were bedrock sym- 
bols of the essence of K- State. 

Students found their cornerstones by reflecting on their 
understanding of K- State and recognizing what contributed 
to their development through academic, social, cultural and 
personal knowledge. 

cornerstones n 35 

As far back as the original Bluemont College Charter, 
interest in agriculture has been central to students, accord- 
ing to "Kansas State University — The Quest for Identity," by 
James Carey. 

Based deeply in agriculture, the school developed strong 
programs in the sciences, which shaped academics at 
K- State. 

"Without the College of Agriculture, we would just be 
another KU," Larry Erpelding, College of Agriculture associ- 
ate dean, said. "It would be really hard for two institutions of 
the same curriculum to survive in Kansas." 

In 1862, Congress passed the Morrill Act, which cleared 
the way for states to build land -grant colleges to specialize 
in agriculture, domestic arts and the mechanical arts. In an 
early session in 1863, the Kansas Legislature was the first 
state to pass the Morrill Act. 

Kansas State Agricultural College — K- State — was the 
first to benefit from the act. Prior to the Morrill Act, most 
universities were based in professional studies not technical 
skills. The Morrill Act played a large part in molding 
K- State's future. Although K- State's curriculum broadened 
over the years to include liberal arts, business and other areas 
of study, agriculture remained deeply rooted. 

The College of Agriculture evolved from teaching farming 
techniques to include 12 areas of study ranging from agricul- 
tural economics to food science. 

In 2003, about 10 percent of undergraduates studied agri- 

"I think our mission has basically been the same — to 
serve the people of Kansas and rural and urban areas," 
George Ham, College of Agriculture dean, said. "We are still 
working to improve the quality of life to all Kansans through 
teaching, research and extension." 

Ham said the agriculture major was broader than farm- 
ing and ranching. 

Through agricultural education and agricultural commu- 
nications, agriculture's influence in related industries grew 
larger. With the impact of agriculture in different indus- 
tries growing every day, and about 20 percent of the Gross 
National Product generated by agriculture, the College of 
Agriculture continued to be a prominent and strong part of 
the university. 

"I perceive, and hope, that the College of Agriculture's 
role would not diminish," Erpelding said, "because our stu- 
dents are going out and influencing many different indus- 
tries and achieving amazing things."

which included Oklahoma's NCAA record of 768 yards on

coaches with a total record of 299-509-40.

With more than 37,000 members, K- State was ranked 
No. 1 in the Big 12 Conference for the ratio of graduates to 
alumni association members, said Courtney Marshall, direc- 
tor of communications and member services. 

"Our K- State affinity is very strong," Marshall said. "It 
carries into the support of alumni. (The ranking) comes 
from trying to educate alumni of what the Alumni Associa- 
tion does, beginning with recruitment of new students. We 
encourage graduates to support our causes." 

The ranking showed graduates supported and recognized 
the association's efforts, she said. 

The Alumni Center itself was a building tool to educate 
the public and alumni about the association. 

"The mission of the Alumni Association is to enhance 
K- State through life-long involvement," she said. "We're 
open to students. We want them to come and feel welcome 
and at home here." 

The Alumni Association programs provided opportuni- 
ties for alumni to continue their involvement with students 
and the university. 

The Student Alumni Association, which began in fall 
2002, aimed to include students in the association, while 
stressing their tie to K- State after graduation. The group 
organized watch parties for away football games and other 
social outings for members. 

The Student Alumni Board focused on promoting 
K- State to prospective students. The group of 30 students 

created in 1981, involved students in association activities. 

When elected to the student board, members met pro- 
spective, current and former students while showcasing the 
Alumni Association, Blake Bauer, SAB president and senior 
in agribusiness, said. 

"(Meeting people) is a skill they can use later in life," Bau- 
er said. "It's a skill beneficial for the workforce, because they 
are able to get a broad range of communication skills." 

The board planned and sponsored college Senior Days 
and the high school events For Sophomores Only and Just 
for Juniors. 

Just for Juniors gave high school juniors a chance to learn 
about college life and visit with K- State students. The juniors 
attending had a chance to win a $100 scholarship. 

The Alumni Association organized a Junior Wildcat Day. 
Children in the Junior Wildcat club met student athletes and 
received autographs. 

"It's a great way to get young people exposed to meet- 
ing student athletes," Melissa Heidrick, associate director of 
alumni programs, said. "Kids are able to learn the concept of 
the student- athletic family." 

After students graduated, they continued to be members 
of the K- State family because of the link forged through the 
Alumni Association, Bauer said. 

"A lot of alumni come back for lots of reasons," Bauer 
said. "Students should know that alumni are always here. 
They would love for students to ask for help."

In the beginning 

In 1 889, Aggieville's purpose was to clean students' laundry. At the 
time, it cost 50 cents per-dozen pieces of clothing to be washed. 

Ten years later, a group of seniors, fed up with high-priced mer- 
chandise, opened The Students Co-operative Association, intending to 
furnish supplies and food to college students at low cost. 

"Business sometimes had some funny twists in the beginning," Dan 
Walter, Aggieville historian said. "One man lost a fortune by not listen- 
ing to his wife's business advice. Another man made his fortune through 
a late-night poker game. The pressures of business caused one man to 
desert his business and leave town with no notice, while another man 
took his own life in the back of his shop."

In 1908, Joseph "Guy" Varney opened The College Book Store. The 
corporation name changed to the University Book Store, but the store 
name remained Varney's Book Store. In 1951, Backman & Ballard's 
Sporting Goods opened. The partners split in 1954, and Charles and 
Leah Ballard established Ballard's Sporting Goods in downtown Man- 
hattan. The store moved to Aggieville in 1961. 

"Ballard's is one of those businesses that has been here over 50 
years, and the name itself means a lot to Aggieville," Tamel Sisney, 
assistant manager of Bollards, said. "We offer a lot of good stuff and 
try to have good customer service to keep the people coming back." 

In 1963, Keith "Kite" Thomas opened Kite's Bar and Grill on 12th 

street. It was the popular hangout for students, Bill Niederee, K-State 
alumnus, said. Forty years later, Kite's was sold, renovated, and 
renamed 12th Street Pub. 

"The nice thing about Kite's was that during the daytime you and 
your friends could go in and get a beer and find a quiet place to study," 
Niederee said. "At night, it was the place to hang out, because it was 
huge. It took you awhile to get through, just to be able to see who was 
all there, but you always knew that you could know someone there." 

The age of Rusty 

In 1989, Rusty Wilson opened Rusty's Last Chance and Rusty's Front 
Patio. In the years following, he opened Rusty's Next Door, Other Side, 
Back Porch and Outback. 

"I think the community has accepted it very well," Wilson said. "We 
were voted No. 1 bar in The Manhattan Mercury the past three years. 
Rusty's targets the residents and college students in Manhattan." 

In 2003, Wilson, who was a bartender and manager at the original 
Kite's, reopened the bar in its original location and attempted to cap- 
ture the bar's old atmosphere. Wilson added sports photographs and 
attached awnings similar to the original ones. He also designed the food 
menu to resemble the original Kite's menu. 

"We want to target the parent's generation with Kite's," Wilson 
said. "Parents and alumni are always coming back and Kite's is some- 
thing they can identify with from that era. We also want to build a new 
tradition along with Rusty's Last Chance."

Throughout its 115 -year history, Aggieville provided 
entertainment, shopping and a variety of other services. 
From children who came to see the St. Patrick's Day Parade 
to Manhattan residents to the college students Aggieville 
relied on for its work force and customer base, Aggieville 
influenced people of all ages, Dan Walter, Aggieville histo- 
rian, said. 

However, the story of Aggieville was as long and colorful 
as the history of the college that paved the way for its exis- 
tence, he said. 

"The story of Aggieville is really the story of individuals 
trying to live out the American dream," Walter said.

Greeks have existed at K- State for more than 100 years. 
Members of greek organizations comprised 15 percent of the 
student body, according to 2002 figures from Greek Affairs. 

"(The greek community) plays a pivotal role in defining 
K- State," Aaron Siders, senior in marketing, said. "We're 
always pushing the limit on new ideas." 

Siders, member of Delta Upsilon and president of 
Interfraternity Council, said greeks have always worked 
hand-in-hand with the university. 

Greeks filled about 65 percent of leadership positions on 
campus, Siders said. 

"I don't think the greeks look to control," he said. "I think 
what happens is your brothers and sisters rally around you 
when you go for something. Your brothers and sisters can. . . 
help get you motivated." 

Sara Jahansouz, junior in life sciences and Panhellenic 
Council president, said greek involvement on campus and in 
the community showed how special the greek system was. 

"The service we do for others (is most important)," 

Jahansouz said. "Because helping those that are less fortunate 
than us is the only way you can truly be successful." 

Greek Affairs, the body that oversees greek activity at K- 
State, stood out from programs at other universities because 
it was not under the university's control, Siders said. 

"Not many people are aware that Greek Affairs is not 
under any umbrella," Siders said. "We have nobody who 
calls the shots. We make our own policy, we hold our own 
students accountable. We can't be shut down like at other 

"I believe that greek houses will always be a part of K- 
State. We are continually building on the foundation we've 
already laid." 

Jahansouz said she believes the greek system will continue 
impacting K- State. 

"As long as Kansas State would recruit amazing new 
students," she said, "it would be a prime opportunity to 
recruit new members. The more quality K- State brings in, 
the more quality the greek community will be as well."

yearbook is the single most used 
item,'" said Linda Puntney, 
assistant director of Student Pub-

it's an indication that we're the

for the university. The RP is the

help them remember and relive 
the 2003-2004 year." 

Student- run media served two purposes at K- State — to 
cater to the student and Manhattan community audience 
and to give students real -world experience in the field of 
journalism. Four branches of K- State media — the Collegian 
newspaper, the Royal Purple yearbook, Orion Online Web 
design and KSDB-FM 91.9 radio station — were produced by 
student staffs. 

Both the Collegian and RP were housed in Kedzie Hall. 
The two publications collectively acquired 20 Associated 
Collegiate Press Pacemaker Awards in the past 15 years. 

Orion Online provided businesses, nonprofit organiza- 
tions and campus institutions with a staff of Web designers. 
Orion gave students experience meeting clients' deadlines 
and demands.

Wildcat Radio KSDB-FM 91.9 

When KKSU-AM 580 went off the air in Nov. 2002, 
KSDB-FM 91.9 became the sole campus radio station. 

KSDB began broadcasting in 1949 at 10 watts. In 
1987, power increased to its current level, 1400 watts. 

From the beginning, KSDB was student operated. In 
1998, the position of student executive director was created 

Adam Magette, senior in mass communication and 
rock music director, said he thought it was important to 
keep the control in the students' hands. 

"I think it's the way to do it," Magette said. "It's our 
radio station. I think we should be running it. I just hope I'm 
doing an effective job of reflecting our students' diverse 
musical tastes." 

Magette said the KSDB staff served students' needs. 

"Most of the people that I run into at the bars when 
I'm wearing my 91 .9 shirt tell me I'm doing a great job," 
Magette said. "If their college years were a movie, I'd be 
composing the soundtrack." 

supplemental CD-ROM -the second yearbook in the 
nation to provide video coverage. 

"The RP is the leader in media convergence," said 
Linda Puntney, assistant director of Student Publications 
Inc. and adviser for the RP. "The first CD, and now the DVD, 
take our readers places we can't take them in print." 

Kansas State Collegian newspaper 

The Collegian is published daily by a staff of 86 
students. In 1998, a staff survey reported more than 85 
percent of students, faculty and staff read the Collegian at 
least twice a week. 

Students produced the first Collegian in 1896. In 1994, 
the Collegian became the third college newspaper to pub- 
lish daily on the Internet. 

Paul Restivo, senior in secondary education and 
2003 fall Collegian editor in chief, partially attributed the 
Collegian's success to its varied staff. 

"We have a more diverse staff because we don't 
have prerequisites," Restivo said. "We take freshmen, and 
we syndicate people. That ends up affecting the product, 
because we have so many diverse backgrounds." 

Orion Online 

Since its inception in 1998, Orion Online student-staff members designed home pages 
for businesses and organizations. The Orion staff experienced all the duties, stresses and 
pressures of meeting clients' demands. 

"We play a huge role in getting students real-world experience," David Smoller, Orion 
director, said. "It's different than just doing it for a class. It teaches our kids to deal with 
real-world expectations and deadlines instead of classroom expectations and deadlines." 

Orion differed from other student-run media because it published for an audience 
outside the K-State community. The 10- to 15-member staff worked for nonprofit organi- 
zations, but served K-State as well. Orion designed the Web sites for McCain Auditorium, 
the Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art, the colleges of Education and Human Ecol- 
ogy, and the A.Q. Miller School of Journalism and Mass Communications. 

Royal Purple yearbook 

Documenting the year's events, the Royal Purple provided a tangible memory of 

Class books first appeared at K-State in 1891, and the first annual named Royal 
Purple was published in 1 909. Over the years, the RP set trends in yearbook journalism. It 
was the first to apply color photographs to the cover, embossed designs on division pages 
and UV lamination on photographs. 

The 1 8-person, student staff handled all aspects of the book, including organization, 
writing, design, photography and marketing.

What is Willie's favorite part 
of the job? 

"He's a celebrity and is able to be com- 
pletely silly and it doesn't matter. It gives him 
a sense of freedom. The skits are a big part 
of it, getting to be the source of everybody's 
entertainment. Also, there is a certain pride he 
takes from being one of the best of his kind." 

How often does Willie 

train for his skits and 


"A few years ago, a skit idea would be 
thought up a few days before it would be 
performed, Willie would just write down 
the idea, get it approved, and then make 
sure the sound people had a soundtrack CD 
burnt. It's changed a lot since then. Nowa- 
days it is a very detailed process, all of the 
skits have to be approved in the summer 
previous to the season. All the details, the 
props, assistants, plot, everything down to 
the best position for the jumbo-tron cameras 
to set up. Willie has to have a soundtrack CD 
cut and do run-throughs." 

2003 K-State versus Marshall — Jeanel Drake 

What are some of the 
challenges he faces? 

"Criticism from fans like 'Willie is the reason 
we lost the game.' It's kind of hard to swal- 
low, but if the team isn't doing well, Willie 
sometimes takes the blame for it. Also, keep- 
ing his true identity anonymous is challeng- 
ing because there is always the temptation to 
just tell one or two people, but if he did, then 
they would get the same urge and suddenly 
everyone would know the secret."

"Mascots are an odd crowd. When Willie goes to 

mascot camps, the mascots are in awe in spite of 

themselves. Willie is one of the few mascots that 

doesn't have a full body costume, and some of the 

mascots think that idea is kind of silly, but once they 

see the reaction Willie gets from the crowds and all 

of the great skits he gets to do, they wish they were in 

his place. As for enemies, on game days, as long as 

they stay on their side of the field, he'll stay on his."

spirit & pride 


For the past 40 years, Willie the Wildcat has been a 
symbol of K- State spirit. Willie worked to excite sports 
crowds through his motions and antics, and he appeared at 
Alumni events. 

When he appeared in public, Willie silently communi- 
cated through big gestures and body language, but in one- 
on-one situations a member of his staff spoke in his place. 

RP: How did K- State become Willie's home? 

Lance Stafford, senior in elementary education and 
member of Willie's staff: "Animals were the most common 
choice back when Willie got started, even in a land -grant 
school. It became popular to have animal mascots. You can 
be a little more creative and have a little more style than a 
human mascot. Animals can usually generate more enthusi- 
asm from the crowd. There's more of a feeling of spirit than 
there is with a big goofy- looking human costume."

alumni involved."

At 1507 Denison Ave., there's something to crow about. 
It's what resident Matthew McGuire, senior in chemical engineering, 
calls an identifying mark. 

"When people ask us where we live," he said, "we tell the address and 
then say, 'you know, the house with the chicken in front of it.'" 

In the 2003 spring semester, Brandon Braley, senior in chemical 
engineering, and his roommates went to Orscheln Farm and Home 
Supply and came home with three baby chicks; they raised each with 
heat lamps, but raccoons ate two of the three. 

Winston, the surviving rooster, attracted a 
lot of attention. 

"The bird follows you down the sidewalk 
for a while sometimes when you are going to 
class," he said. "Then he'll come back home." 
When Braley 's new roommates found out a 
rooster came with the house, they didn't know 
what to think. 

"I wasn't really sure about it. I was like 
'hmmm, maybe we could eat him,'" Kevin 
Bass, senior in chemical engineering, said. "We started sitting out on the 
front porch and everybody would walk by and look at him and I thought

supervise him. Photo by when he was walkin B Brale y to school. Donald Ross, animal control offi-

in city limits, and he would have to get rid of the rooster. 

Ross said this wasn't the first time he'd been called for a roaming 

"Actually," Ross said. "I have chased probably 10 chickens across the 
city in the past year." 

Braley researched the law and found a loophole allowing him to keep 
the chicken in an enclosure. 

Braley and his roommates built Winston a temporary cage, which they 
hope to make bigger someday. 

"We are going to get some hay to put in there and we'll probably 
throw some leaves in there," McGuire said. "A friend said that chickens 
will dig through a pile of leaves over and over and not get bored."

Stop Day 
offers chance to 

- relax, study, take 

students set ge of a,s 

tension breaker 

by Jennifer Newberry 

The clock chimed 11 a.m. 
Simultaneously, a fire quietly 
roared beside her. 

Catherine Verschelden, senior 
in finance, was hard at work 
studying managerial reporting 
for her accounting final only one 
hour away. To help ease the stress 
of having multiple finals on one 
day, Verschelden moved one of her 
finals to Stop Day. 

K- State's first Stop Day 
occurred on Friday, Dec. 12, 
directly before finals week, Dec. 
15-19. No classes were allowed on 
Stop Day, giving students a day to 
use how they pleased. 

"It gives people an extra day to 
study or an extra day to goof off," 
Verschelden said, "so they're more 
productive later." 

Stop Day was put onto the aca- 
demic calendar to allow students 
to study more for finals, said John 
O'Hara, student body president 
and senior in finance. 

"Travis (Stryker) and I felt it 
was important to give students 
an extra day," he said. "In the Big 
12 (Conference), nearly all of the 
schools have a study day. It will 
help alleviate stress and create a 
better dead week." 

Verschelden studied in Cats' 
Pause Lounge on the second floor 

of the K- State Student Union. 
Originally trying to study in 
Calvin Hall, Verschelden moved 
to the Union in hopes of finding a 
warmer place. 

"It was freezing (in Calvin)," 
she said. "I thought it would be 
warmer over in the Union. I saw 
the fireplace (in Cats' Pause) and 
figured it would give off some 
heat. Plus, it's quiet, and there are 
comfortable seats." 

Stop Day also lessened stress 
students felt over finals, Verschel- 
den said. 

According to the University 
Counseling Services Web site, 
people tended to react with more 
tension than needed 50 to 200 
times a day. Instead of a person's 
body returning to a more natural, 
stress-free level, their body would 
remain tense and active. The 
tenseness resulted in difficulty 
concentrating on studying, excess 
fatigue, possibly being unable to 
sleep, and feeling more rattled and 
making more mistakes. 

Verschelden said the university 
should continue to have Stop Days 
to help students with their stress 
and studying for finals. 

"They can definitely be 
enforced," she said. "(University 
officials) haven't always been able 

to enforce dead week. This is one 
way to make sure students don't 
have as much to worry about." 

In addition to Stop Day, 
students had other methods of 
relieving their finals stress. 
"I'll try to study ahead," 
Verschelden said. "I'll also take 
study breaks and see people that 
I haven't seen too much this 

O'Hara said most students had 
positive reactions to Stop Day. 

"I've heard nothing negative 
about it," O'Hara said. "Students 
were pleased and surprised that 
we had it." 

While many students appreci- 
ated the extra day off, Stop Day 
was not put on the academic 
calendar for 2004-2005. 

"Faculty said it was cutting 
into their time," O'Hara said. 
"They recognize the fact that we 
are one of a few Big 12 schools that 
don't do it. But they don't want it 
next year." 

Due to a mandate by the Board 
of Regents, K- State was required 
to be in session for 75 days each 
semester. Stop Day required the 
university to start a day earlier, 
and faculty did not want to lose 
that day from their summer, 
O'Hara said.

Classy Cats 

share friendship, 

. t . love of 

some girls just spotlight 

want to nave run 

by Matt Gorney 

With a passion for dancing and performing, the Classy Cats show- 
cased their talents through original routines and sideline cheering. 

The 26 women, who practiced each weekday, sometimes found it 
difficult to balance the squad, school and a social life, Ashley Friend, 
junior in biology, said. 

"I think the hardest part is making sure you have enough time to 
be your own person, (but) it's definitely worth it," Friend said. "It's just 
wonderful — it's a positive experience." 

Jessica Crowder also singled out time management as the most dif- 
ficult part of being a Classy Cat. 

"The physical aspect is hard, but you're 
used to it," Crowder, junior in marketing, said. 
"If you don't manage your time, it can catch up 
to you." 

Laine Brumley, junior in mass communi- 
cations, said she found practices sometimes 
demanding, but worth it. She said balancing 
her time was not difficult. 

"It's all I've ever known," Brumley said. "It 
took a little adjusting right off the bat." 

She said it was her love of dancing that led her to tryout for the 
Classy Cats. 

"I love to dance and I love the friends I've made," Brumley said. "It's 
a very close-knit group." 

Crowder agreed the best part of being on the squad was the friends 
she made. 

"I've never been part of a group where everyone had gotten along 
and there were no cliques," she said. "That's probably my favorite thing." 

Doing something she enjoyed with people who were her closest 
friends, was the best part of the squad, Katherine Swain, sophomore in 
kinesiology, said. 

"I like being on the Classy Cats because I'm part of another family 
— we all look out for each other," Swain said. "Especially coming to 
college as a freshman, it's great having an older group of girls who know 
what they're doing. They just kind of take care of you and take you in."

In April, the Classy Cats went 
to Daytona Beach, Fla., and com- 
peted in the National Dance Alli- 
ance National Dance Championship. They placed ninth. 

"(My best experience was) definitely going to nation- 
als," Friend said. "(It's) one dance and it's so important. 
(We) work on it for three or three-and-a-half months to 
perform it once or twice. It's rewarding to see hard work 
pay off. It makes you realize why you do it and why you love 
it so much." 

After sending in a video bid for the 2004 competition, 
the Classy Cats received a pre -ranking of fourth. 

The section leader and four assistants usually coordi- 
nated routines. However, a choreographer was hired for the 
routine performed at nationals. 

Although she said national competition was her favorite experience, 
Friend said she loved performing at football games. 

"It's a completely different world down on the field than in the 
stands," she said. "My first K- State game was my first cheering. It's so 
awesome to be down on the field and take it all in.

Arizona before New Year's 
Eve and the days before 
the games were filled 
with sponsored activities. 
"(I spent) way to much

It was estimated that the 2004 
Tostitos Fiesta Bowl's economic 
impact on the state of Arizona was 
a little more than $150 million. 

Highlighted by the football 
game, Jan. 2, Tempe, Ariz., offered 
fans activities leading up to, and 
after, the game. 

At Wells Fargo Arena, the 
K- State pep rally highlighted New 
Year's Day. Attended by more than 
14,000 fans, it was unofficially 
the largest pep rally in Division I 
football history. 

"Just about the time I had 
you all figured out, you go and 
do something like this," Athletics 
Director Tim Weiser told fans as 
he began his speech.

Kimber Williams, a graduate 
student in justice studies at Ari- 
zona State University, attended the 
pep rally in place of her mother, 
L. Sue Williams, assistant profes- 
sor of sociology at K- State. 

"My mom wanted me to come 
down and take pictures for her," 
Williams said. "This is amazing, 
there is nothing else like it." 

Lindsay Glatz, senior in mass 
communications, flew in with a 
friend from Chicago and summed 
up her week by "doing anything 
K- State." 

"I've been to other bowls but 
this is the best atmosphere," she 
said. "It's also exciting to play this 
team in the situation that we're in." 

As time wound down on what 
was the longest of the 33 Fiesta 
Bowls, fans clad in scarlet and 
gray left victorious while K- Staters 
walked out 53 yards short of what- 

"I thought Tempe did a good 
job of providing an excellent and 
exciting atmosphere for the Fiesta 
Bowl," Alisha Spears, senior in 
elementary education, said. "I still 
get goose bumps thinking about 
how many Wildcat faithful turned 
out for the pep rally and the game 
itself. The fans did a superb job 
of sticking behind their Wildcats 
in a time of crisis. Purple Nation 
knows that when the going gets 
tough the tough get going." 

Thousands of fans attend 
the pep rally to show sup- 
port for the Wildcats. The 
rally took place on New 
Year's Day and featured 
Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, 
President Jon Wefald and 
Coach Bill Snyder. Speak- 
ers offered fans entertain- 
ment and a chance to get 
pumped up for the game.

Standing over his canvas, 

James Taylor drips his 

blood onto a wet surface. 

While Taylor said he knew 

his blood paintings were 

shocking to his audiences, 

he said he wanted them to 

provoke viewers to think 

about the expression of the 

painting. Photo by 

Katie Lester 


There were no buckets of paint 
or jars with paintbrushes sur- 
rounding James A. Taylor as he 
stood over five canvases in his art 
studio. The 20 by 20 foot room 
possessed only a plastic tarp pro- 
tecting the concrete floor as Taylor, 
senior in fine arts, created artwork 
on the canvases laid on the tarp. 

His medium for painting was 
his own blood. 

Taylor stood over the canvases 
with blood running down his arm 
from 3-4 inch cuts he created with 
a razorblade. The blood dripped 
off his fingertips as he splattered it 
around the canvases. 

Using Peppermint Schnapps 
and Mountain Dew as blood-thin- 
ners, Taylor continually tapped his 
veins to encourage blood flow. 
Twice during the process, 
Taylor washed his arm and made 
fresh cuts to continue painting. 
Although he bled for an hour, 
Taylor said he probably only used 
a few ounces of blood. 

"I've never woke up woozy, so 
I've probably never used too much 
blood," Taylor said. "I've been more 
disoriented because of the alcohol, 
but I'm very careful about how 
much I drink and what I drink." 

Once the painting dried, Taylor 
preserved it for presentation. 

"Although my blood is free 
from all the diseases that are pos- 
sibly out there, I plastic wrap and 
polyurethane it to make people 
more comfortable," he said. 

60 student life 

Fellow fine arts senior and 
former roommate Blake Standard 
said he did not agree with Taylor's 
method of painting, but said art- 
ists should not care about what 
others' thought. 

"We get beyond it," Standard 
said. "Nobody should give too big 
a deal about what others' think. 
He does it for himself, and that's 
what we're supposed to be doing." 

Although Taylor painted 
alone, and out of their apartment, 
Standard said he knew when 
Taylor painted. 

"I've seen the paintings, and 
I've lived with him and seen him 
the minute he got back from 
painting," Standard said. "He's 
arms are all. . .he's wearing long- 
sleeve shirts." 

Taylor said he began painting 
with blood in high school, when he 
signed his name in his own blood 
to show support for the work. 

"It had to do with my trust in the 
quality of the art," he said. "Now, it's 
about what I'm willing to give up for 
my art. I'm willing to slit my wrists." 
The evolution from signatures 
to complete paintings stemmed 
around Taylor's survival of 
attempted suicide and depression. 

"The first time I did a big 
painting with blood in it, it 
preceded me trying to (overdose) 
within a week," he said. 

Born and raised in Manhat- 
tan, Taylor said he knew there was 
more controversy in his work in 

the Midwest, but he hoped people 
could look past the blood and 
think about the meaning. 

"I hope to get a reaction with 
emotion," he said. "I don't want 
people to say, 'oh, this is pretty.' 
Whether they agree or disagree 
(with the method), I don't care. 
I want people to think deeper 

Taylor said what he did was 
small in comparison to other self- 
destructive artists. 

"I'm doing nothing compared 
to most self- destructive artists," he 
said. "This is nothing extreme except 
for the fact that I'm in Manhattan in 
the conservative Bible Belt." 

Standard agreed other body 
artists were not like Taylor's art. 
"Not many do it the way he 
does it," Standard said. "Many of 
them amputated body parts or 
something serious like that." 

According to the Art Institute 
of Chicago, body art is a type of 
art that uses the human body as 
its medium. The institute said in 
body art, the body often presents 
the ways in which humanity as a 
whole is oppressed or victimized. 
For Taylor, dealing with depres- 
sion personally and through 
friends created his motivation. 

"Depression has become a 
four- letter word," he said. "People 
don't deal with it. I deal with it 
daily. You may think I'm dealing 
with it in a way that's self-destruc- 
tive, but who are you to judge me?" 

James Taylor works on his 
fifth blood painting titled 
"Uncensored Sacrifice." 
Taylor has been signing his 
artworks in blood since he 
was 16 and used blood as 
a medium since 2001. "To 
me, it's painting," he said. 
"There might be a limited 
amount of paint, but to me, 
if it's on a canvas hanging 
on a wall it's a painting. The 
blood itself is the ultimate 
way for me to convey what 
I'm trying to express." 
He said that his method 
of painting and similar 
practices were considered 
less extreme in coastal, 
metropolitan areas. Photo

With blood beads dripping 
down his arm, James A. 
Taylor, senior in fine arts, is 
ready to paint. Taylor drank 
alcohol to thin his blood, 
and used a razor blade to 
make small vertical incisions 
in his left arm. He added 
the blade to the painting 
because he wanted an 
element of origination. 
Taylor wanted to turn his 
painting in for a class, but 
was discouraged by the 
department faculty. He also 
was asked to find a new 
studio location to do his art 
because he was banned 
from working with his blood 
on campus grounds. Photo

Graham transforms 
from student to Wildcat 

by Christy Setter 

Willie the Wildcat symbolized K- State and yet remained one of the 
best-kept secrets on campus. In addition to appearances, Willie prac- 
ticed for games, went to class and took tests like other students. 

Behind the exuberance and underneath the sports gear and giant 
Wildcat head was Justin Graham, senior in psychology. For three years, 
Graham suited up as K- State's masked friend. 

Keeping a concealed identity was not difficult, he said. 

"Sometimes it's not hard to keep it secret," Graham said. "After the 
way I dance around out there, I'm glad nobody knows it's me." 

Cheerleaders, and others who knew Willie's identity, were told to 
keep the information confidential. 

"At first most of my friends didn't know it was me," Graham said. 
"By now though, they pretty much have it figured out — a lot of that is 
thanks to my mom. She's so proud; she talks about it all the time." 

Damian Hilton, cheerleading coach, said Graham's greatest attribute 
was his ability to interact well with children. 

"I like the little kids. They always want to play with me," Graham 
said. "Sometimes though, with the head on, I just can't see them because 
they are so small. I've knocked kids over before by accident." 

Joann Long, student athletic trainer and sophomore in nutrition and 
exercise science, said she thought Graham's Willie was the best she'd 
seen, primarily because he enjoyed it so much. 

"He just seems to have the right personality for it," Long said. 
"Others are personable and outgoing, but he just seems to connect really 
well with the fans." 

Hilton said Graham created a high standard for future mascots. 

"I use Justin as an example — he is great at what he does," Hilton 
said. "The guys know that we try to make Willie better every year, so it 
can get tough. I will definitely be looking for many of the same qualities 
Justin possesses in any new guys." 

Kelsey Spratlin, cheerleading captain and junior in life sciences, said 
Willie helped keep tradition alive at K- State. 

"Nothing is better than hearing thousands of fans yelling 'K-S-U,'" 
Spratlin said. "Those types of things wouldn't be possible without Willie." 

Disguising himself as Willie presented perks for Graham. He had a 
seemingly endless collection of free T-shirts, photos and news clippings 
collected from various events and appearances. 

Graham said although he enjoyed those things, they were not what 
he liked most about being Willie. 

"The best part of being Willie is that I get probably 500 hugs a day," 
Graham said. "I get more hugs than anyone I know — it's awesome." 

Taping his wrists while getting into costume, 
Justin Graham, senior in psychology, said it's just 
part of the outfit. "Maybe (tape) draws attention 
to my arms; who knows." Graham said. 

Becoming Willie the Wildcat seems to be less 
than glamorous as Graham dresses in a laundry 
room at Bramlage Coliseum. "I'm pretty lucky," 
he said. "Usually, I'm changing in bathrooms." 

Finalizing the outfit, Willie emerges. "I have to 
wear two stocking caps so the head will stay 
on," Graham said. "After a while they can get 
pretty gross."

After 20 hours and numerous trial-and-error experiments, 12 
members of the Cat Cannon Club had something to show for their hard 

The Cat Cannon idea came when the upper deck was added to KSU 

"Willie had a small T-shirt cannon, but he could only shoot shirts 
into the lower deck," said Gregory Spaulding, associate professor of 
engineering technology. "Being the 'more power' kind of guys that we 
are, we decided to construct a T-shirt cannon that would shoot shirts 
into the upper deck." 

The second-generation Cat Cannon made its premiere at the Troy 
State football game in August. Daniel Mathewson, president and 
junior in mechanical engineering technology, and members of the club 
designed and built the cannon in technology labs at K-State-Salina. 

"It's lighter and more user friendly," Mathewson said. "It has similar 
strength to the first one." 

The cannon's design resembled that of a paintball gun. Composed 
of two air tanks and four valves, the cannon used pressurized air. With 
a pressure of 60 pounds -per- square -inch, the Cat Cannon shot 72 T- 
shirts 100 feet in the air at each home football game. 

"The K- State -KU game was the first time I saw the Cat Cannon," 
Katie Moldenhauer, freshman in elementary education, said. "It's fun to 
watch people try to catch the shirts and fight over them." 

With so much pressure, safety was a main concern for the club. In 
order to prevent injuries, the cannon was angled where it shot above the 
crowd, causing T-shirts to fall onto the fans. 

The cannon made appearances at other sporting events beside foot- 
ball games. 

"The Cat Cannon travels around the state to a variety of events such 
as the State Fair, rodeos, concerts, air shows and high school events," 
Spaulding said. "We provide goodwill and promote KSU." 

Since the Salina campus did not have football players, cheerleaders 
or band members, the Cat Cannon allowed students to participate in 
activities tied to the Manhattan campus. 

"The best part about being part of the club is being able to watch 
the K- State games on the field and seeing how far you can launch (the 
cannon)," Mathewson said. "It's our tie to the games."

Caren Boyd started small. 

She spray- painted the frame 
and wove pipe cleaners around the 
spokes. She used fringe and fabric 
puff- paint to add more decora- 

But she was not finished. 

Her bicycle would not be seen 
without plastic figurines glued on 
the frame, bumper stickers, key 
chains and a flag that read "The 
Dragon Wagon." 

Boyd, first-year student, 
like other college students, used 
a bicycle as a major source of 
transportation, but unlike other 
students, she decorated her bike 
as a piece of art. The inspiration 
came during her junior year of 
high school, while on a road trip 
with her family. 

"This car passed us on the 
freeway and along the top of it 
were random plastic action figures 
glued on," Boyd said. "We went 

home and did a search on the 
Internet for these sort of things. 
We found art cars and thought it 
would be fun." 

Boyd was inspired to decorate 
the car she drove in high school. 

"Kids in high school don't 
want to stick out," Boyd's mother 
said, "but (my kids) knew they 
would be spotted no matter where 
they were in town." 

When Boyd went to college in 
California, she left her car with 
her parents. 

"I missed it in a lot of ways," 
Boyd said, "and since my bike was 
my transportation, I decorated it." 

Boyd moved to Manhattan in 
summer 2003 and was not able to 
bring her bike along. She brought 
some of her favorite bike parts 
for a new bike she purchased in 

"When I do my fabric paint 
and rhinestones, I have sort of a 

style," Boyd said. "I usually use 
neon on black and do a swirl pat- 
tern and interesting designs." 

The bicycle displayed Boyd's 
personal style with small figures 
and decorations, Kris Kelling, 
freshman in open-option, said. 

Boyd was not the only one who 
liked it. 

"I was driving to class one day 
and saw her riding this bike that was 
covered with art and small figures," 
Kelling said. "I thought it was really 
creative and awesome that she deco- 
rated and rode that bike." 

Boyd said responses ranged 
from yells to horn honks to 
comments like, "cool bike." One 
particular incident stuck out in 
her mind. 

"I had one guy pull over in his 
car and offer to buy it from me," 
Boyd said. "I told him I wouldn't 
rob him of the fun of making one 

After taking a test at Trotter 
Hall, Caren Boyd, first-year 
student, rides her bike down 
Kimball Avenue to her 
house. Boyd showed off her 
unusual piece of artwork by 
riding to classes everyday. 
As her main source of 
transportation, she even 
rode her bike to buy grocer- 
ies. Boyd said her bike was 
fun to ride, but it gave her 
a workout. "It is top heavy 
and weighs a lot," Boyd 
said. "I suppose it would 
be good for athletic train- 
ing, but it is definitely not 
efficient for riding." Photo

Using plastic figurines, 
Caren Boyd decorates her 
transportation — a Schwinn 
bicycle. Boyd used plastic 
toys and other items she 
found to adorn her bike. 
She even looked at second 
hand stores for new-to-her 
items. "Most of the time I 
see something at a garage 
sale or the Goodwill — like 
some piece of hideously- 
gaudy, junk jewelry," 
Boyd said. "Recently, I got 
a couple of saddle bag 
bike baskets, filled them in 
with plastic and started a 
bumper sticker collection."

Distracted from the parasi- 
tology lesson, Maize plays 
with a pen while 
Dr. Pat Payne checks slides 
for her parasitology class's 
final review. Maize was 
training to be an assistance 
dog and attended all of 
Payne's classes as a part 
of her training to learn to 
be around many types of 
people. Maize came from 
Washington, Kan., through a 
program called Kansas Secu- 
rity Dog Service, Inc. Photo 
by Emily Happer 

Dr. Pat Payne taught exclusively with praise. It was always "good 
job" and "nice work." 

Payne, a research assistant professor in diagnostic medicine and 
pathobiology, used hand signals to give instructions and commands. 
Her form of teaching was not for college students, but for Maize, the 
yellow Labrador retriever she trained to be a service dog. 

As a first-time puppy trainer, Payne made Maize part of her home 
and the college. She trained Maize from summer 2003 until spring 2004. 
Before Payne could begin training Maize, she requested permission from 
the dean, department heads and campus police. 
She began training 9 -week- old Maize using 
positive reinforcement, hand signals and com- 
mands. The first lesson was teaching Maize to sit. 
Part of Payne's job required her to get Maize 
accustomed to being in public places. 

"I need to get her used to everybody — big 
people, little people," Payne said. "We went 
to Purple Power Play on Poyntz where we met 
the people on the stilts and all these kids were 
running around." 
Payne explained how it was a behavior project, not just for Maize but 
also for those around her. Maize even went to class with her. 

"The vet-med school really was interesting the first day," Payne said. 
"There were 109 people. Some of them did really good and came up and 
asked if they could pet her." 

It didn't take long for Maize to become a part of the classes Payne taught. 
"Maize is with her when she is teaching," Kimathi Choma, second - 
year student, said. "We interact with her as much as possible." 

With the initial training completed, Payne went into training more 
specific to the type of service dog Maize would become. 

Jamie Morales, sophomore in animal sciences and industry, com- 
pleted a project about Maize. She said Maize would be trained to 
become either an assistant dog, guide dog, service dog or hearing dog. 

"When she's done working, I get her back," Payne said. "She can 
retire at my home."

Saddles, bridles, blankets 
and spurs served as essentials for 
horseback riding, but doctors at 
the College of Veterinary Medi- 
cine added inhalers to the list for 
some horses. 

Just as humans could have 
difficulty breathing due to asthma 
or allergies, horses could also have 
similar conditions. 

"There are horses who look 
pretty normal in health at rest, 
but, when they exercise, begin 
to cough or show intolerance, 
and they're just not able to do 
what they used to do, and they 
have a lot of trouble recovering 
from exercise," Dr. Bonnie Rush, 
professor of clinical sciences, said. 
"They breathe hard, and other 
horses that need to be treated with 
aerosol medication prior to exer- 
cise maybe stimulated by cold air 
or exercising-induced asthma or 
inhalation of dust during exercise. 
Any of those things could trigger a 
horse when they exercise." 

Different seasons triggered 
allergies in humans and horses. 

"Early spring when there is a 
lot of pollen, or late summer and 
fall (can trigger allergies)," Rush 

said. "August and September are 
worse months for horses that have 
trouble because there is a lot of 
mold. It's very hot and humid." 

Owners of horses assisted 
with their horse's health through 
prevention methods, Laura Waitt, 
veterinary medicine intern, said. 

"(Owners can do this) by 
managing their environment," 
Waitt said. "Keeping them in a 
pasture; feeding clean, fresh hay 
and ensuring they have shelter 
from both hot and cold weather." 

Horse medications were 
the same as those prescribed 
to humans. The way they were 
administrated was also similar. 

"There are different types 
of inhalers we use," Rush said. 
"There is a mask system that we 
use, very similar to the hand-held 
inhalers humans use," Rush said. 
"The most novel inhaler horses 
use is a device that was made from 
the cast nostril of the horse, it fits 
in the left nostril of the horse and 
it has a breathing indicator. When 
the animal is breathing, it admin- 
isters just a puff of drug." 

Oxygen was another method 
of treatment, but the inhaler 

seemed to be the better method, 
Molly E. McCue, third-year stu- 
dent, said. 

"Horses learn that their respi- 
ratory distress resolves with the 
inhaler," Waitt said. "(They) are 
usually quite amenable, after some 
practice, to having it held at their 
nostril while they breathe." 

Research on inhalers for 
horses started at the college about 
10 years ago. The college spent 
many hours trying to get new 
methods of treatment and new 
medicines passed through the 
Food and Drug Administration, 
McCue said. 

"There is always on -going 
research because we really know 
what the standard of human 
drugs will do in horses," Rush 
said. "The newer human drugs 
we haven't tested in horses, so 
we don't know how often they 
need to be administered, what is 
the appropriate dose (and) what 
are the types of diseases that will 
respond back with that particular 
drug. So, we could be spending 
the next 10 years getting caught 
up on the drugs available for 

horse inhalers □ 71

animal care

The sounds of little feet and youthful voices echoed through the hallways of 
the College of Veterinary Medicine, Oct. 17, as 50 first- graders from Council Grove 
Elementary School visited for an educational field trip. 

To make the day possible, Patricia Schroeder, third-year student, reserved space, 
asked for volunteer help and adjusted laboratories into six different stations. 

"This is the third time that CVM has hosted the elementary mini-lab," Schro- 
eder said. "We did it last year for the first graders of Council Grove, and then did it 
last spring semester for the third graders, and this fall for the first graders." 

The first graders rotated between six stations. Each station featured demonstra- 
tions including skeletons, models or live animals. Topics covered at the stations con- 
sisted of rabbits, reptiles, horses, ruminate stomach, a seeing- eye -dog and a dog's 
heartbeat lab. 

"I think it's a chance for them (the kids) to interact with the community," Mary 
Livengood, third-year student, said. "It makes kids so happy (The mini-lab) brings 
so much joy to people's lives. They get to come see the dogs and learn about them. 
It's a lot of fun." 

In one station, students listened to a dog's heartbeat through stethoscopes. 

"I think the exposure to the animals is what they like," Karel Carnohan, third- 
year student, said. "I really do think they like learning about the animals and having 
some hands-on activities around the animals and the skeletons." 

The day was interactive as students asked questions and handled some of the 

"I think it's about a love for animals that they want to become involved with 
them, whether becoming a vet or in the community," Erin Hiskett, first-year stu- 
dent, said. "I hope they understand that animals are sort of like people. We need to 
take care of them." 

One goal was for students to learn how to properly care for animals, Hiskett said. 

"I hope they have a better appreciation of animals and what they bring to our 
lives and how important it is to give them good care," Livengood said. 

In order to teach appreciation, veterinary medicine students arranged lesson 
plans to include proper caring techniques at each station, Schroeder said. 

"What we wanted to do was to make it fun, but we also wanted them to learn 
something from every station," Schroeder said. "So we tried to keep it down to the 
first-grade level." 

Little feet and tiny voices were not only heard — 'ewe,' 'gross' and 'cool' were 
some of the first-graders reactions. 

"The most enjoyable part of the day was to see the kid's reactions," Carnohan

The cattle were owned by 
private individuals. Jeffrie

College of Veterinary Medicine students typically completed 164 
hours. However, a few students opted to take an additional 14 hours as 
part of the Feedlot Certificate program. 

The program involved 20 weeks divided between two summers of hands- 
on experience at feedlots around the country and a series of courses offered 
at the college. The certificate program, led by Dr. Mark Spire, professor in 
diagnostic medicine and pathobiology, was opened to students fall 2000. 

"We had a serious meeting with feedlot consultants on the role of 
training management people in the feedlot- cattle industry," Spire said. 
"We wanted to get them started early in their professional careers and 
have opportunities to learn the industry and the technology." 

The program accepted two students from each graduating class. 

In the first summer session, students worked as employees in a feedlot 
and studied the managerial site of the operation. During the next summer 
session, students worked with the consulting veterinarian on site and 
practiced managerial skills, procedural skills and case management. 

Jocelyn Fox, fourth-year student, started her last year of the pro- 
gram fall 2003 to prepare for the final summer requirement. Her last 
year of courses was comprised of indoor laboratory studies. 

"There's a lot of cattle, ranging anywhere from 50,000 to 100,000 
cows per feedlot," Fox said. "We learn about crops, feeding, how to diag- 
nose what disease a cow died from — which is very important — and 
vaccination for the sickness." 

Another area of the feedlot program was performing animal autop- 
sies in the field. 

"We have to do autopsies all the time, especially if it's a young cow," 
Fox said. "If we don't, it may be a deadly disease wiping out a whole herd." 

Jeffrie Fox, graduate student in pathobiology, completed the pro- 
gram spring 2003 and chose to apply the hours to his master's program. 

"My experience was very positive," he said. "It gave good insight into 
what goes into a feedlot. Now that I've been on the employee side, I can 
see both sides of the issue."

To enhance their college 
experience, students from the Col 
lege of Veterinary Medicine were 
involved in a club related to their 

The students, active within 
their college, were part of the Stu- 
dent Chapter of Veterinary Medi- 
cine Association, which helped 
prepare for future careers. 

Twenty- eight colleges had a 
SAVMA chapter, and nationally, 
there were more than 8,000 active 
student-members, Christa Heil- 
man, third-year student, said. 

"The local chapter mostly 
supports the students," Stacey 
Steeples, third-year student, said. 
"It supports other clubs within the 
vet school. It's like an umbrella for 
all of the vet med clubs." 

SAVMA helped support clubs, 
such as the Equine club or the 
Exotic club, by purchasing sup- 
plies and helping with events. 
Also, SAVMA funded and par- 
ticipated in Veterinary Medicine's 

Open House. 

"It's at the same time as the 
open house on the main campus," 
Steeples said. "Each individual 
club has their own booth and 
display. We hook up machines 
to dogs so we can see the physi- 
cal changes while they run. We 
also have a heart maze, where 
people can be like blood and walk 
through the channels. There are 
all kinds of different things giving 
the public an idea of what vet-med 
is about and what it (accompa- 

The organization was not all 
fun and games; they also had 
business matters to cover as well, 
Heilman said. 

"About 100 percent of the 
students are members," Brandy 
McGreer, third-year student and 
SAVMA delegate, said. "We get 
together for board meetings once 
a month at the vet school; all vet 
students are invited to attend." 
In addition, the meetings' 

discussions sometimes extended 
beyond business. 

"Sometimes the group meets 
and talks about topics such as 
debt load after college," McGreer 
said. "It's more of a support 
group. While in school, we're all 
going through the same things 

Students benefitted in several 
ways from membership. In addi- 
tion to the preparation opportuni- 
ties, students were offered a health 
insurance plan, Steeples said. 

The opportunity to give input, 
Heilman said, was one benefit she 
felt she received from the organi- 

"SAVMA allows us to become 
more involved and to meet other 
students here. It also allows us as 
students to learn the outlets of vet 
med," Steeples said. "It's good to 
be involved with something not 
book related. It's a social outlet 
and an opportunity to travel, and 
it's a lot of fun."

Looking for encouragement and fellowship from others who shared 
her faith, Stacy McReynolds joined Christian Veterinary Mission Fel- 
lowship fall 2001. 

McReynolds, president and third-year, wanted to better know other 
Christians in her profession, she said. 

"At vet-med, it's kind of easy to get burned out," she said. "It's a very 
intensive program anyway — most students carry 20 hours. It's easy to 
get bogged down and almost depressed and down about schoolwork." 

Veterinary medicine students needed encouragement and spiritual 
accountability from others, McReynolds said. 

"It's easy to let your spiritual life slide," she said. "You need encour- 
agement and accountability from others to grow while maintaining a 
spiritual level." 

The organization met every other Tuesday for a Bible study session 
or outside -speaker presentations. Bible studies were led by volunteers 
from the group and topics varied depending on the presenter. Sarah 
Kingsley, secretary and second-year, said there were approximately 40 
members and 20 usually attended meetings. 

"We'll pick a passage and study that passage, or someone has a specific 
topic they've been thinking about," McReynolds said. "We've had them on 
stewardship, using talents and money, and taking time to glorify God." 

Prayer was also a frequent topic, she said. 

Speakers who presented usually told experiences from their lives as a 
veterinarian and Christian at the same time, Mary Livengood, activities 
chair and third-year, said. 

In addition to the Bible studies and speakers, the group had social 
activities such as game nights, or nights out-on-the-town. Some mem- 
bers attended the National Christian Veterinary Mission Fellowship 
Conference in Texas, Livengood said. 

"It's important to have a group of Christians who can get together 
and talk about things going on in their lives," she said. "We're all in vet 
med and we can support each other. (It's also important) to have people 
in your prayer group who are around you all the time." 

Although the group provided an outlet specifically for veterinary 
medicine students, there were no restrictions on who could attend, 
McReynolds said. 

"Even if they've never been to a meeting or aren't a Christian, they're 
welcome to come," Livengood said. "We try to invite anyone who wants 
to come or who needs support or needs to talk to someone."

In January, the College of 
Veterinary Medicine and Sandia 
National Laboratories announced 
that a decontamination chemical, 
DF-200, was an effective foam 
chemical agent in killing the virus 
that caused Severe Acute Respira- 
tory Syndrome. 

In less than six months of 
research and studies, Dr. Sanjay 
Kapil, associate professor of 
pathobiology and diagnostic med- 
icine; Cecelia Williams, gradu- 
ate student in pathobiology and 
representative of Sandia National 
Laboratories; and K- State students 
developed the formula, which was 
highly effective at decontaminat- 
ing SARS, Kapil said. 

SARS first appeared in south- 
ern China, Nov. 2002. In August 
2003, K- State's College of Vet- 
erinary Medicine was selected by 
Sandia National Laboratories to 
conduct research on SARS. 

Not only did SNL collaborate 
with K- State in the research, but 
contracted K- State as the only 
facility in the nation to work on 
the project. K- State's selction 
came because of the school's high 
reputation in studying Bovine 
coronavirus over the past 20 years. 

"KSU has developed key lab 
reagents that allow us to success- 
80ostudent life 

fully conduct these decontamina- 
tion studies," Kapil said. "Over 50 
publications on K- State regard- 
ing the Bovine coronavirus have 
been published in the U.S. and 

Researching a SARS vaccina- 
tion was a confidential project, 
and research was led by Kapil. 
With efforts from Williams and 
more than a dozen students, K- 
State played a major role in the 
SARS study. Each student aver- 
aged eight hours per week in the 
lab contributing to the research. 

"It's a challenge to try and find 
something that no one has ever 
found before," Laura Gast, junior 
in biology, said. "It's like looking 
for a needle in a haystack when 
you don't even know where the 
haystack is." 

In addition to making scien- 
tific decisions in the labs, students 
made lifelong friends. 

"(Kapil) is great — always 
busy, but always willing to stop 
whatever he is dong to help me on 
anything I have a question on," 
Katie Ransom, junior in fisheries 
and wildlife biology, said. "He is a 
great presence to have around in 
the lab, not only for his knowledge 
and experience, but he tells great 
stories and always has a joke to 

make you smile." 

Sandia National Laboratories 
provided K- State with diagnostic 
testing supplies and $200,000 to 
fund the project. 

"SARS belongs to the family of 
viruses known as corona viruses," 
Kapil said, "This is most closely 
related to viruses in the anti- genie 
group II." 

As dangerous as it appeared 
under the microscope, the virus 
was equally dangerous to work 
with, said Williams, who was 
hired by SNL after she graduated. 

"Because it's so hazardous 
working with the SARS virus," 
Williams said, "a similar, safer 
animal surrogate virus, Bovine 
coronavirus, is used in the 
research instead." 

Feb. 2, 2004, the discovery 
became international news when 
Sandia released information to the 
public about the foam chemical 

"It will be very effective," 
Kapil said. "The reason it is such 
big news is because they have 
been applying the same chemical 
when looking for other emerging 
virus projects. It was used in the 
Anthrax outbreaks, and the same 
foam will be used when studying 
the Avian flu on campus." 

Using a pipette, Laura Gast 
adds anitibodies to her 
samples. Gast worked with 
the College of Veterinary 
Medicine and Sandia 
National Laboratories to 
develop a decontaminia- 
tion formula for the SARS 
disease, which infected 
8,900 people and killed 
774 in 2003. Photo by

SARS, Laura Gast, junior 
in biology, listens as Katie 
Ransom, junior in wildlife biol- 
ogy, tells her the cells she is 
using are dead. Researchers 
from both K-State and Sandia 
National Laboratories tested 
the decontamination formula 
in various conditions to gauge 
its effectiveness. Photo by

Like any college student, Jill Caputo, senior in English, zoomed 
around campus to get to class. 

The difference was Caputo did it in her wheelchair. 
Caputo had a stroke at age 1 1 after an aneurysm. She was in a coma 
for 6-8 weeks and stayed in the hospital for three-and-a-half months. 
The stroke left Caputo almost completely paralyzed on her left side. 

"When I first woke up, I couldn't do anything," she said. "I had to 
learn how to redo everything." 

Thirteen years later, Caputo still suffered the effects of the stroke. 
Although she could walk with the aid of a cane, she said she could 
not do it for very long before falling. 

Caputo said her current life was much 
different than before the stroke. One of the big 
differences was her relationship with friends. 
"The people who know me now, know me 
as Jill who uses a wheelchair and walks with a 
cane," Caputo said. 

Caputo said while she had a cane, it was 
easier for her to get around in her wheelchair. 
"I only use my wheelchair on campus, not 
my cane," she said. "I walk around my apart- 
ment some, but my balance isn't very good — I 

Caputo lived alone in a ground -floor 
apartment near campus. She said while she 
was capable of doing many things for herself, 
she had a helper each morning from Alpha Zi Delta sorority, where she 
was an alumna. 

"I can do it, but it takes a really long time, so (helpers) just make 
sure everything's going good," Caputo said. 

Four women from the sorority took turns helping Caputo get 
dressed in the morning. 

One of the helpers, Jessica Peterson, senior in marketing and inter- 
national business, said she believed Caputo was strong-willed. 

"I think that she's a very determined person," Peterson said. "She 
knows what she wants and goes after it. She's just amazing, in all hon- 
esty. She's never let things get her down — she just picks up and goes 
from where she is."

Jessica Peterson said Jill Caputo was a good role model for others 
who suffered from disabilities. 

"She's gone through so much and dealt with so many issues and 
problems," Peterson said. "It could show others not to let their disabili- 
ties rule their lives." 

Caputo said her biggest discouragement was not being able to drive 
a car. 

"When I had my stroke, I lost my left side peripheral vision — so I 
can't drive," she said. "If it's not within walking distance of my house, I 
can't go out." 

She also said getting around Manhattan was challenging because 
there was not an adequate transportation system to facilitate wheel- 

"There's just not much transportation-wise, which is kind of a hin- 
drance with me," she said. 

Although Caputo said she became frustrated trying to do everyday 
things, she tried not to let it get her down. 

"I used to cry about it a lot," Caputo said. "I don't really think about 
it anymore. It's just a part of who I am." 

She also said people have treated her differently because of her dis- 

"People have lots of pre -conceived notions. But usually, as they get 
to know me, it goes away," Caputo said. "You just have to take it for what 
people mean because people mean well." 

Caputo said while it was hard dealing with her disability, after 13 
years, she has learned to accept it. 

"There just comes a point where you have to learn to accept your 
disability and move on," she said.

As the season of Lent started, two religious movies charted the box office 
and a student group pushed awareness of Christ and his teachings. 

During February, posters and sidewalk- chalk advertisements announced 
the Empty? campaign sponsored by Campus Crusade for Christ. 

Allyson Davies, associate campus director for Campus Crusade, said 
the campaign's purpose was to expose students to the reality that things 
such as success, popularity, pleasure and status do not bring the real 
satisfaction people long for. 

"All of these things fall short of bringing us true fulfillment," Davies 
said. "We believe that the deep satisfaction and joy we all long for can 
only be filled by having a relationship with Christ." 

Brent Watson, campus director for Campus Crusade, said he hoped 
the campaign would challenge students to think about meaning and ful- 
fillment and create opportunities to present Jesus Christ as the answer 
to those issues. 

"We heard reports throughout the week of students getting into con- 
versations about whether or not people felt fulfilled in life," Watson said. 
"We also had a number of people attend our meeting who expressed 
interest in talking more about how Jesus might be the answer to the 
emptiness in their lives." 

During the same time as the advertisements of the Empty? cam- 
paign, "The Passion of the Christ" was released in theaters, Feb. 25. 

Father Keith Weber of St. Isidore's Catholic Student Center said he 
thought the movie was very powerful. 

"It spoke well of the love God had for the world," Weber said. "When 
we watch any movie about any biblical event, we need to remember 
there are going to be things that are not in the Bible. The movie will 
hopefully make us go back and read the Bible." 

The movie was written and directed by Mel Gibson. Davies said she 
was impressed he would subject his reputation and career to ridicule for 
the sake of educating people about biblical events. 

"There is a lot in the movie that isn't in the Bible," Weber said. 
"(There is) a lot of Mel Gibson in the movie. He adds a lot of good 

Davies said the movie had a great impact on her. 

"I was very excited that our society would be exposed to the truth 
of what Christ accomplished on the cross and what he suffered on our 
behalf," she said. "Even though I had read through the Gospels many 
times, I still found myself shocked at the very painful and violent death 
He suffered for our sin."

The war officially began March 20 when Coalition 
troops pushed into Iraq. By March 29, troops began heavily 
bombing Baghdad. 

The Coalition seized control of the city April 8 and also 
controlled the military airport near the city. 

April 11, President George W. Bush's administration 
officially announced Saddam Hussein was no longer in 
power. The war officially ended on May 1, but the country's 
reconstruction would take years. 

Officials reported 3,758 people died during the war, 176 
from the Coalition forces.

Aggieville fire leaves mark 

by Lindsay Porter 

May 16, the Friday morning of graduation weekend, a 
fire destroyed two buildings and damaged two others in 
Aggieville. Firefighters were called to Aggie Station and 
Krystallo's at 7:17 a.m., and the fire was under control 
by noon but was not completely put out until Saturday. 
Porter's and Varney's Book Store suffered smoke damage. 

Fire Chief Jim Waudziak said the fire started because of 
an accidental short circuit wiring in Aggie Station's main 
electrical feed service and breaker panels. 

More than 60 firefighters were at the scene to extinguish 
the blaze. The Riley County Appraiser's Office and Riley 

County Historical Museum reported the appraised value of 
the two buildings was $244,240. 

"The upside is, Krystallo's is planning to come back," 
Cheryl Sieben, director of Aggieville Business Association, said, 
"and I'm sure they'll fill that space in Aggie Station soon." 

Varney's reported more than $1 million in building and 
merchandise damage. Manager Jim Levin said a big part of 
the damage stemmed from the large inventory of clothing. 
The store sold most of the damaged clothing at 40 percent 
off. After the two -day sale during graduation weekend, the 
store closed for three days to clean air filters and carpets. 

Salina professor dies elDs in effect 

After a brief illness, Don Buchwald, professor of 
engineering technology, died March 25. Buchwald 
worked at K- State -Salina since 1966, the year 
before the college opened. David Delker, head of 
the Department of Engineering Technology, said 
Buchwald added a sense of history and tradition

Electronic IDs replaced student access names and 
passwords for the computing system, March 31. 
Rebecca Gould, director of information technology 
assistance center, said the new elD system provided 
more convenience with only one ID and password

Townsend, director of computer and network ser- 
vices, said if someone found a student's password, 
they would have access to all the student's accounts.

Eight states and parts of Canada encountered a black- 
out for more than a day, Aug. 14. Fifty million people in the 
United States experienced the country's largest power outage. 

New York City was almost completely dark as people 
scrambled to buy batteries and candles. Along with cities 
in Connecticut, Vermont and New Jersey, outages were also 
reported in Erie, Penn.; Ottawa, and Niagara Falls, in both 
New York and Ontario 

During the blackout, cell phones stopped working, 
drinking-water pumps stopped, and airports without power 
caused a jam of 400 flights in the air and on the ground. 

Although the cause of the power failure was unknown, 
some suggested an antiquated electrical grid was the source 
of the problem. 

After 29 hours, power had been restored in some areas. 
Detroit was the last metropolitan area left in the dark, but, 
on Aug. 16, the city regained power. In addition to seeking 
the cause, officials looked into finding a solution for any 
future outages. 

Poyntz closes near 
high school 

by Lindsey Thorpe 

Construction on Poyntz Avenue between 17th Street 
and Sunset Avenue began June 1. Ineffective gutters and the 
steep grade of the street caused improper drainage, which 
forced the city to remove the entire roadway to fix the prob- 
lem, Jeff Hancock, city engineer, said. 

The area previously required patches and asphalt over- 
lays from city road crews to keep the road serviceable. The 
sub -grade, on which the street was based, failed and caused 
significant erosion on the surface and its base. 

Hancock said the existing pavement was irreparable. 

Crews installed a drainable base that would continue to sup- 
port the roadway while allowing water from springs to drain. 

Construction was completed in mid-November.

space for Lafene to function on one floor. 

K- State's SafeRide program debuted Aug. 
21. The program was implemented as an alter- 
native way for students and their friends to

New currency 

The Federal Reserve System introduced a 
redesigned $20 bill in October. The bill had 
peach and blue tints, instead of the common 
green and black. It was the most secure U.S. 
currency to date by making counterfeit-

security thread and color shifting ink. The 
new $20 bills circulated with the old-style 
bills until the older ones were pulled due to

sustained injuries such as amputations, hypo- 
thermia and lacerations. The captain, who 
attempted suicide after the accident, was one 
of those critically injured in the accident. 

Snipers convicted 

The trial for sniper suspect John Muhammad 
began Oct. 20, in Virginia Beach, Virginia. 
Muhammad was charged with two counts of 
capital murder, and one count each of con- 
spiracy and use of a firearm to commit a felony 
during the sniper shootings. The 2002 shoot- 
ings spanned a three-week period in which 
10 people were killed and three injured. John 
Lee Malvo was also charged in the case. On 
Nov. 17, the jury found Muhammad guilty of 
the charges. On March 9, he was sentenced 
to death. After being convicted of the same 
charges, Malvo was sentenced to life in prison 
without parole.

Water payment settled 

by Jaci Boydston 

After three years of being under billed for its water use, 
Colbert Hills Golf Course and the city of Manhattan decided 
on a reimbursement sum of $256,000, $73,576.23 less than 
the total amount the city was owed. 

The golf course was to make payments over a nine -year 
period with three percent interest. If the complete balance 
was paid in five years, city officials said they would waive 

interest, and any interest which had been paid would be 
applied as credit. 

City officials realized the oversight in July 2002, and 
both parties reached a settlement in October. 

City Commissioner Brad Everett said the year-long 
wait for a settlement was unacceptable, and he expected 
some city employees to be fired in response to the issue.

ROTC students honored 

by Lindsay Porter 

The K- State Army ROTC programs led the region in honors 
when eight seniors were honored by the national program. 

The following students were recognized as Distinguished 
Military Graduates from the Army ROTC program: Jason 
DaVee, senior in sociology; Robert Garven, senior in political 
science; Micah Rue, senior in management; Chad Hines, 
senior in mechanical engineering; Mark Peer, senior in 
secondary education; Jared Barnhart, senior in civil engi- 
neering; Michael Sykes, senior in mass communications, and 
Courtney Townsend, senior in elementary education. 

The honor was a national distinction to recognize the 

best cadets in the nation, Lt. Col. Arthur DeGroat, head of 
the military science department, said. 

DeGroat said the board looks at academic standing, 
service contribution to the university and the community, 
in addition to physical fitness and performance ranking in 
all army and military training. 

It was the first time the university had eight cadets 
selected for the honor — 44 percent of the graduating class. 
Through that distinction, K- State topped the eight- state 
region, which includes 20 colleges and universities that have 
the Army ROTC programs.

Hussein captured 

by Matt Gorney 

On Dec. 13, U.S. forces involved with Operation Iraqi 
Freedom captured ousted Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein. 
Intelligence gathered from interviewing people close to 
Saddam led troops to Adwar, Iraq, near the former ruler's 
ancestral home, Tikrit. Found in a small hole covered 
by a Styrofoam block, rug and dirt, Saddam offered no 
resistance when taken into custody by forces from the 
4th Infantry Division's 1st Brigade Combat team. Only 
a pistol was found with Saddam. In the two -room, mud 
brick house that concealed the entrance to his hideaway, 
$750,000, and two AK-47 rifles were recovered. A white- 
and- orange taxi was also recovered outside the structure. 
After his capture, Saddam was taken to an undisclosed 
location and DNA tests confirmed his identity. A video- 
tape of him being examined by doctors was released to the 
media, and Iraqi citizens streamed into the streets of Iraq's 
capital, Baghdad, in celebration.

On Feb. 5, classes were canceled after 2 p.m. due to an accu- 
mulation of ice, snow and an expected fall in temperatures. Total 
snowfall accumulation was approximately 15 inches. 

Tom Rawson, vice president for administration and finance,

Football publicity 

The University of Colorado received 
national attention when three women 
said they were raped by football players 
or recruits during a 2001 off- campus 
party. Former place -kicker Katie Hnida 
also said she was raped by an ex- team- 
mate in summer 2000. Head coach Gary 
Barnett was placed on paid leave after 
negative comments he made regarding 
Hnida's playing abilities after her allega- 
tions. By Feb. 17, seven women had come 
forward saying they were raped by CU 
players or recruits since 1997. 

March 5, Martha Stewart was found 
guilty of one count each of conspiracy 
and obstruction of justice, and two 
counts of making false statements. Her 
ex-broker Peter Bacanovic was found 
guilty on four of five charges he faced. 
Stewart, 62, faced up to 20 years in 
prison. Bacanovic faced up to 25 years. 
Sentencing was set for June 17.

by Jaci Boydston 

Classical music took a backseat, Sept. 16, when the K- State Orchestra 
welcomed electric violinist Doug Cameron to town for a pops concert. 

Cameron, who spent six days in Manhattan, rehearsed with the 
orchestra, visited area schools, taught classes and gave a lecture. He even 
went to a football game. 

"I've really had a chance to settle in," Cameron said. "It's a real slice 
of Americana." 

Cameron contacted David Littrell, orchestra director and distin- 
guished professor of music, one year before the concert to begin plan- 
ning the event, which was a first for both Cameron and the university. 

"You can't imagine how many details are involved in something 
like this," Littrell said. "This is hot stuff. It's one of the most exciting 
concerts I've ever been involved in." 

The pops concert involved a variety of musical styles and portions of 
it were improvised. 

"The concert was, in general, more of an improvisational concert," 
Sonder Smith, concertmaster and senior in biology, said. "(Cameron) 
would be playing a solo and improvising it on the spot, and we would 
have to follow him." 

Smith said Cameron further lent his artistic nature to the concert 
by milling through the audience to play directly to people, and wore a 
silver sequined jacket for a portion of the concert. 

"He was awesome," Smith said. "He was very much a showman." 
Smith said she was excited to perform with Cameron, especially 
when she performed a solo on his electric violin, during "The Devil 
Went Down to Georgia." 

"I was pretty nervous at first, but then it was just fun," Smith said. 
"(Music) is what I do for fun; it's what I do to relax. Whenever I get to be 
in front of an audience, it's a pleasure." 

Cameron said part of the reason he wanted to come to K- State was 
to make more people feel like Smith did. 

"I think there is a certain spirituality in music that takes you to 
another level," Cameron said. "I look at my fingers sometimes, and it's 
like someone else is working them. It's indescribable. I hope to show 
young people what that feeling is all about." 

Cameron said he experienced more in Manhattan than just interact- 
ing with young musicians. 

"I've really enjoyed my time in Kansas," Cameron said. "People 
shouldn't take for granted what they have in this community. Physically, 
it's beautiful and people are kind. It's been a pleasure to get to see it."

History inspires professor 

Zschoche shares 
vision of past 
with students 

by Matt Gorney 

In high school and through 
her beginning college years, a 
career in history was not in Sue 
Zschoche's future plans. 

After graduating from 
Emporia State University with a 
bachelor's degree in psychology 
and earning her master's degree in 
counseling from East Texas State 
University, Zschoche went to the 
University of Kansas. 

"I started to apply to Ameri- 
can studies programs because I 
was interested in a lot of things 
and, since it was interdisciplin- 
ary, I figured you could actually 
get a doctorate and never declare 
a major," Zschoche, chair of the 
history department, said. "They 
made you take some history 
courses as part of the curriculum 
at the University of Kansas where I 
entered the program. 

"I hated history, — just 
despised it," she said. "I'd taken 
some as a freshman and hadn't 
done particularly well, hadn't 
stayed awake most of the time 
and I'd hated it in high school and 
this was a revelation for me. This 
was social history and it was just a 
wondrous thing, and, so, I became 
a convert to history, actually." 

Zschoche joined the K- State 
faculty after graduating from KU 
with a master's in philosophy and 
a doctorate in American studies. 

"I taught in a temporary posi- 
tion for the department (in) '83- 
'84 and got this position, a perma- 
nent position, the following year," 
Zschoche said. "So it's actually the 
20th anniversary of my affiliation 
with this department." 

After hearing of the full-time 
opening at K- State in her field of 
study, Zschoche almost did not 
take the job. 

"I was living in Manhattan 
while I went to school at KU," she 
said. "The summer I finished my 
dissertation and defended it and 
graduated, there was a position 
open in this department. It was 
such a ridiculous notion that I 
could apply for a job in the town 
in which I was living, and actually 
get it, that I almost didn't apply 
for it." 

Zschoche said K- State was a 
good fit for her because she said 
she could relate to students, being 
from Kansas herself. 

"I feel like I understand the 
students," she said. "Midwestern 
students are kind of different. 
They tend not to brag about them- 
selves and there's some wonderful 
students out there." 

In addition to teaching and 
being department chair, Zschoche 
was a department adviser. 

Adam Buehler, junior in his- 
tory, had Zschoche as an adviser 
and also took one of her classes. 

"I think she is probably one of 
the best teachers I've had since I've 
been here," Buehler said. "She is 
good at making you see people in 
history as people — like you were 
actually there." 

Buehler agreed Zschoche was a 
good academic adviser. 

"You know she's really, really 

serious about helping you out, but 

she's got a good sense of humor," 

Buehler said. "She makes it fun." 

Zschoche said she enjoyed 

interacting with students and 
advising them during college. 

"You get to see kids start 
as freshmen and watch them 
graduate, which is a really great 
pleasure," she said. "In addition to 
that, just because I'm in the office 
now, as the chair of the depart- 
ment, I see lots of students for all 
kinds of different reasons so that 
interaction is very positive for 
me. Even when they're bringing 
me their troubles, I like to talk to 
students a lot." 

Jack Holl, professor of history, 
joined the department in 1989 and 
has worked with Zschoche since. 

"She is an outstanding col- 
league," Holl said. "She's got 
unusual vision and great interper- 
sonal skills. She's a fine leader of 
the department." 

Zschoche said her colleagues 
have been her mentors and the 
department faculty felt like family. 

"Everybody hangs together 
and works together — this 
department is really wonderful 
about working together," she said. 
"These are wonderful people to 
work with, they really are — it's 
just terrific." 

Awarded with the Amoco 
Foundation Award for Excellence 
in Undergraduate Teaching, in 
1987, and the Presidential Award 
for Teaching Excellence, in 1999, 
Zschoche said she was grateful. 
"I been fortunate enough to 
win a couple of awards," she said. 
"If you really, really, really love to 
teach, and I really, really, really 
love to teach, it's such a huge

Architecture students used a 
wide range of tools — every- 
thing from mechanical 
pencils and scales to extra 
knives. Students had to pur- 
chase their own supplies.

The Department of Archi- 
tecture faculty expected detail, 
professionalism and time from 
their students, Clint Hibbs, senior 
in architecture, said. 

"With this, they emphasize 
professionalism, so we're required 
to have our act together," Hibbs 
said. "There are size requirements, 
requirements for your presenta- 
tion and you have to show the 
process of your development ideas 
— ideas that are coherent." 

Architecture students delved 
into every aspect, Breanne Spar- 
row, junior in architecture, said. 

For Hibbs, creating a model 
involved reading, researching 
and understanding all angles of 
the project. Then he sketched a 
concept and precisely measured 
each piece of the model during the 
construction phase. A final pre- 
sentation concluded the tedious 
process, Hibbs said. 

"Anything worth doing is 

worth doing right," he said. "I 
couldn't do it any other way." 

Time required for projects 
often interfered with personal, 
family and sleep time, Hibbs said. 

"(It's most difficult) to keep 
going, in the middle of the night 
when you're tired," Sparrow said. 
"You have to balance (your time)." 

Study models could take a 
few hours to complete, while the 
final model could take days, Sheila 
Wolf, assistant professor, said. 

"It's easy for the teachers to 
visualize your ideas," Nicholas E. 
Robinson, junior in architecture, 
said. "They can't see inside your 
head. It gives them a sense of what 
you're trying to accomplish." 

Studio required each student 
to work four hours, three days a 
week. Students typically worked 
two to three hours outside of class, 
which translated to around 40 
hours a week, Hibbs said. 

"The demands put on us 

exceed what should be," Sparrow 
said. "People have died because of 
no sleep, so it's a concern among 

When students built models, 
they bought materials with their 
own money. A project's cost 
depended on size and detail 
requirements, Robinson said. His 
costs ranged from $90, for a pavil- 
ion for the largest ball of twine, to 
$271, for a Wildcat Winery. 

"The better a project looks, the 
more expensive," Sparrow said, 
"which means a better grade." 

Model-making was just a 
piece of the entire design process, 
Wolf said. An understanding of 
the entire design process helped 
students build a good foundation 
in architecture. 

"Your project can take any 
form and make it into something 
you think is beautiful," Sparrow 
said. "It's exciting to be able to do 
what you want to."

The Pulitzer Prize and Tony award-winning play "Proof," a story 
about family, trust and mathematics, opened the theatrical season at 
Nichols Theatre. 

"It seemed to be a really good project to open the season with," said 
Cathy Anderson, director of "Proof" and associate professor in speech 
communication, theatre and dance, "both for the actors and stage design.' 

The play told the story of two sisters, Catherine and Claire, who 
came together after the death of their father, Robert — a well-known 
and mentally ill mathematician played by Matthew McCann, sopho- 
more in theatre. 

Hal, Robert's student, went to Catherine's home, hoping 
to find one last genius discovery in Robert's work. Joseph 
Clark, senior in theater, played Hal. 

"The challenge in playing Hal was getting out of my own 
head and into Hal's," Clark said. "I thought it was helpful 
to hang out at the math buildings and see how they acted, 
thought and how their attitudes were. The guys in the math- 
ematics building have an attitude, portraying that I'm better 
than you,' but not in a bad way, just because they know what 
they're doing." 

Clark said he based his depiction of Hal partially on 
what he saw in the mathematics buildings. 

"1 wanted Hal to have that sense of 'I'm better than 
you,'" he said. "I think Hal was somewhat devastated when 
he finds out that he's not better than Catherine is in math- 

The play centered on a mathematical proof found and 
the question of who discovered it: Catherine or her father. 
The end of the play determined who made the discov- 
ery, but the core of the play was not about math, Anderson said. 

"At the heart of the play, it is about family, people and trusting your 
self and other people," Anderson said. "It is a lot about faith, too. It is 
intellectually challenging, but emotionally interesting, because it holds 
situations in which we can all identify."

enee Bradley portrays Cath- 
erine, one of two sisters 
who reunite after the death 
of their mentally-ill father.

Small town, community journalism plays an important 
role in people's lives and should not be taken for granted, 
photojournalist Jim Richardson told students and com- 
munity members, Sept. 18, at the fourth annual Huck Boyd 

In addition to describing his experiences taking pictures 
all over the world for "National Geographic Magazine," 
Richardson detailed the years he spent documenting daily 
life in the small town of Cuba, Kan. His experience in Cuba 
taught him about community journalism and the assump- 
tions people have made about it. 

"I suppose the fact that we are here speaking about 
community journalism belies an underlying sentiment that 
we somehow believe community journalism is second- 
hand journalism — that the real journalism is going on 
someplace more important," Richardson said. "We also 
take it that community is a lower level of interest than cities 
and the grand things that happen in other places. Let us 
not put community into this convenient cubbyhole of less 
importance. This is the foundation of where we live, why 
we live and what we can do." 

Richardson said his definition of a community included 
any group of people who interact meaningfully, whether 
or not they were members of the same small town. He 
provided examples of communities he would have liked to 
photograph, including the 1927 New York Yankees, Nazi 
Germany and the 50,000 Harley Davidson riders of 
Sturgis, S.D.

"It is not the infrastructure that makes the community, it is the 
people," Jim Richardson said. "You can go to a shopping mall, and you'll 
see all kinds of people doing all kinds of things, but there may not be 
one iota of community happening. And, yet, you may encounter a group 
of people whose only connection is through the Web who have formed a 
real community." 

Peter Goering, instructor of journalism and mass communications, 
encouraged his students to attend Richardson's lecture in Forum Hall. 
"I thought it would be entertaining and enlightening, especially for 
students studying journalism," Goering said. 
"He's a photojournalist. He tells stories with 
pictures and does it very well." 

Although not a student of Goering's, Chris- 
topher Hanewinckel, freshman in journalism 
and mass communications, attended Goering's 
lecture because of his interest in photography 
and his work for Student Publications Inc. He 
also had Richardson critique his photography

Geographic photographer because that's some- 
thing I might want to do in the future," Hanewinckel said. "He looked 
at a lot of my high school stuff. He said I need to take more pictures that 
tell stories." 

Goering said Richardson's lecture was valuable for photographers 
and journalism students. 

"I think Jim made a good point," Goering said. "I grew up in a small 
town. A lot of people tend to turn their noses up at small-town journal- 
ism, but I'm a big fan of small-town journalism."

With no agenda or work in sight, faculty and students had nothing 
but fun and food at the Department of Management's tailgate, Oct. 18, 
for the football game against Colorado. 

Each month during fall, the department hosted an event to give 
faculty and students a chance to interact and socialize. 

"The tailgate worked out really well," Brian Niehoff, management 
department head, said. "I felt that a tailgate in October would be very 
appropriate with football season in full swing." 

Niehoff owned season tickets since Bill Snyder's first year at K- State. 
He said he remembered times when there were no tailgates or parties. 
Niehoff said that there was little reason to be excited about games. 

"Other schools I had attended always had great tailgate traditions, so

boring, because he will always tie 
other things in." 

The lecture was part of the 
College of Architecture, Planning 
and Design's centennial sympo- 


"It was a great speech because 
(Charney) really gets into his 
stuff," Stemmons said. "Instead 
of doing it all on Frank Lloyd 
Wright, he brought us through 
with the other characters. It was 
really cool how he told the story." 

Charney detailed the story of 
Frank Lloyd Wright's visit to 
K- State in 1952 and how Wright 
was directly connected to Man- 
hattan through his apprentice, 
Edgar Tafel, a Manhattan resident. 

Mark Bacon, senior in archi- 
tecture, said he enjoyed learning 
more about Wright and his con- 
nection to K- State. 

"Frank Lloyd Wright is this 
mysterious figure — this self- pro- 
claimed world's greatest architect 
— and a lot of people have an 
interest in who he is," Bacon said. 
"I thought it was interesting that 
there was a parallel between Frank 
Lloyd Wright and the town of 

He also orated the historical 
context of Wright's visit, including 
the campus -wide controversy over 
the construction of the K- State 

Student Union that many archi- 
tecture students spoke out against. 

"It really got me excited to see 
how the students got involved in 
their department (back then)," 
Tom Milavec, junior in architec- 
ture, said. "It was very moving. 
There were a lot of people talk- 
ing about (the speech) for days 

Around the time of Wright's 
visit, architecture students were 
voicing their opposition to plans 
for the new Union. 

Milavec said he was unhappy 
to learn architecture students and 
faculty were not consulted when 
plans were drawn. 

"I didn't really know that our 
voice wasn't heard on a university 
level," Milavec said. "I was under 
the impression that the university 
would come to the architecture 
department before building a new 
building. It made my peers and me 
angry at that fact." 

To avoid similar controversies, 
Milavec said more communica- 
tion between the university and 
the college would be beneficial. 

"I think we should be con- 
sulted — not just the students, 
but definitely the faculty," Milavec 
said. "It's kind of a shame that the 
university doesn't come to these 
professionals to seek their advice."

Increases fluid programs 

Higher tuition 

enhances student 


by Lindsay Porter 

Implementing the second year of a five-year tuition strategy pro- 
duced a 20.1-percent tuition increase, but also created 19 categories of 
high- concentration student enhancements. 

Information distributed by the administration about the five-year 
strategy stated increases were necessary to supplement a decrease in 
state financial support and push K- State to Top -10 Land Grant Univer- 
sity status. 

Students were informed of the tuition increase and benefits by 
articles quoting Student Governing Association officers and colorful 
posters distributed throughout campus buildings. 

Roxann Corcoran, senior in anthropology, said she knew about 

Need-Based Tuition Reductions 


Tuition reductions were offered for undergraduate 
students who demonstrated financial need through 
traditional student financial aid packaging process. 

Targeted Excellence 


A task force identified mission-related programmatic 
areas that could become more prominent with the in- 
fusion of additional resources. Funds were available 
on a one-time basis in fiscal year 2004 to increase 
flexibility centrally and at the college level. 

Base Budget Inflationary Increase 


Funds were set aside to address the cost of living in- 
creases for FY 2004 and to help offset the impact of 
unfounded budget obligations. 

Departmental OOE 


K-State's non-salary budget was historically funded 
at a very low level relative to any reasonable bench- 
mark. Funds provided a base budget OOE increase 
of approximately 3.5 percent. 

Information Technology Infrastructure 


The project, called the Integrated Information Initia- 
tive, involved replacement of legacy administrative 
systems such as the student information system and 
the central accounting system, as well as a complete 
overhaul of the information technology systems. The 
five-year project implemented a seamless state-of- 
the-art information structure for academic, adminis- 
trative and research functions. 

Library Acquisitions and Operations 


Recent budget reductions, unfunded mandates and 
large inflationary increases for periodicals created 
extreme pressure on the University's library. Funds 
protected the library's purchasing power against 
inflation and provided minimal increases for other 
basic operating support.

Minimum Wage Increase for Student 
Hourly Employees 

It was difficult for departments to hire students be- 
cause many local employers paid higher wages. 
Funds increased the minimum wage for students from 
$5.15 per hour to $5.75 per hour. 

Classroom Improvements 


Funds allowed the acceleration of classroom improve- 
ment program by providing money to purchase addi- 
tional instructional technology or replace existing out- 
dated technology and to replace and repair desks, 
chairs and other classroom furniture. 

Increase Salaries for Budgeted General 
Use Graduate Assistant Positions 


Funds increased salaries for all budgeted general use 
graduate teaching assistants, graduate research assis- 
tants and graduate assistants positions by 7.5 percent. 

Student Readership Program 


The Student Readership Program was a subscription 
provided through University Library that provided 
two national, one regional and one local newspaper 
at no cost to students wish to participate. 

Academic Advising for Arts and 
Sciences and Business Administration 


Funds provided salaries and benefits for two academ- 
ic advisers for the College of Arts and Science— one 
for students enrolled in the open-option and one for 
pre-health programs. One adviser position was pro- 
vided for the College of Business Administration. 

Diversity Programming 


Funds supported a variety of programs designed to 
promote an awareness of the importance of diver- 
sity. Programming helped the university community 
become more aware of different ethnicities, back- 
grounds and cultures. 

Developing Scholars Program 


The Developing Scholars Program matched under- 
graduate students with faculty who mentor them and 
include them in their research in meaningful ways. 

Educational Opportunity Fund 


Funds provided additional support to traditionally 

under-funded student programs. 

Global Education Initiative 


Funds provided assistance to students who studied 
abroad, provided transportation to and from Kansas 
City International Airport for international students, 
and provided salary and fringe benefits for a graduate 
assistant in the Office of International Programs. 

Freshman Orientation Program 


Funds benefit Cats' Camp— a three-day, two-night 
extension of orientation for new students. The series 
of seminars, forums and group activities was hosted 
by students, alumni and faculty to introduce new stu- 
dents to K-State traditions and campus policies. 

University-wide Tutorial Service 


Funds supported additional tutoring positions at the Tutor- 
ing Center. The additional funding provided more tutors 
and expanded the areas in which tutoring was offered. 

Internship Director for Career and 
Employment Services 


The main responsibility of the new position was to assist 
students by conducting resume and cover letter critiques, 
outline job search strategies and provide guidance regard- 
ing application procedures and University Recognition. 

Activity Coordinator for Ahearn Complex 


Funds provided salary and fringe benefits for a part- 
time employee to oversee sports organizations' safety

the tuition increase from professors, but was not aware of the student 
enhancements until she saw a poster in the K- State Student Union. 

"I tried to figure out the graphs (in the Union)," she said, "but I 
don't think they explained the categories very well." 

The posters featured a pie chart of the student enhancements that 
designated where, and in what increments, funding was distributed. The 
posters briefly described each funding category. 

Sam Meier, senior in computer engineering and SGA academic 
affairs committee member, said the chart might be cryptic if students 
were not aware of higher education issues at the state level.

Corcoran agreed they were beneficial to students. 

The increase in campus minimum wages and the diversity program- 
ming funds were the most immediate, visual enhancements, Meier said. 

"Student senate and executive officers have heard back from several 
students in appreciation of the wage increase," he said. "It was something 
that needed to happen to ensure those positions remain competitive." 

Another immediate success of the student enhancements was the 
Student Readership Program. 

Through university libraries, The Manhattan Mercury, The Topeka 
Capital Journal, The New York Times and USA Today were available to 
students, paid for by increased privilege fees. Dispensers were located in 
buildings across campus and two copies of each newspaper were deliv- 
ered daily to greek houses and residence halls. 

The next step on the administration's agenda was a tuition-rate dis- 
tinction between upper-level and lower-level undergraduate courses. 

"The practicality of it makes sense," Meier said. "Upper level courses 
are more expensive to teach because they usually need specialized 
faculty and special equipment. I see (the increase) as a benefit to ensure 
those upper-level classes are still offered." 

Corcoran viewed the proposal differently and said she was against 
additional tuition increases. 

"It is the people who make it to the upper level who want to continue 
their education," she said. "It is getting to be more expensive for me to 
take an upper-level class here than a graduate -level course at another 
school like (Fort) Hays."

Out of 10 Master Certified Flight Instructors in Kansas, three 
worked at K- State -Salina. Bill Gross, professor of aviation, earned the 
status in the fall after much documentation. 

Applicants submitted a documentation package covering the areas of 
education, service to the aviation community, media creation and par- 
ticipation. Documentation required 32 continuing- education credits. 
"I feel, since I have accomplished this, that it will give others the 
respect of being a professional flight instruc- 
tor — not just being an ordinary instructor," 
Gross said. 

Two other K- State Salina faculty members 
previously received the status of master certi- 
fied flight instructor. Bernard King, associate 
professor of aviation, was first. He earned 
his status in August 2001 and renewed it in 
fall 2003. Assistant professor Eric Shappee 
obtained MCFI status in November 2001. 

"It was very satisfying to do something no 
faculty member in the university had done 
before," King said. "It's a pleasure to see others 
accomplish the same." 

Out of 81,000 certified flight instructors in 
the United States, less than 400 had MCFI des- 
ignation, which is given by the National Asso- 
ciation of Flight Instructors and recognized by 
the Federal Aviation Administration. 

"Having three master flight instructors 
highlights the expertise of our faculty," Marlon 
Johnston, aviation department head, said. "It 
also shows how our professional pilot program is becoming one of the 
top degree-awarding flight programs in the country. Only one other 
institution has more MCFIs."

new degree gives hands-on 

One of the oldest athletic 
training programs in the country 
among Division I universities was 
a non- degree program before May 
2003, Denis Medeiros, Department 
of Human Nutrition chairperson, 

In May, the K- State program 
was approved as one of three 
accredited degree programs by the 
Kansas Board of Regents. 

"A bachelor's degree in athletic 
training is now required by the 
national accrediting body for 
trainers to be allowed to practice," 
Medeiros said. "It's a very hot 
program. We get a lot of inquiries. 
It's an excellent opportunity for 
students with both health and

athletic interests." 

Before the degree program, 
students seeking athletic training 
certification majored in biol- 
ogy, education, human nutrition 
or other science-based majors 
and completed athletic training 
courses, participated in an intern- 
ship experience and passed the 
national exam. 

Medeiros said the change 
allowed students to graduate with 
an athletic training degree, take 
the national exam and immedi- 
ately begin practicing. 

During its first semester, 21 
students declared the major. 

Senior Lindsey Goodman was 
a kinesiology major, but decided 
to dual major when the athletic 
training program was accredited. 

"A lot of students who were 
already in the (kinesiology) pro- 
gram are doing both," she said, 
"but new people are just doing 
athletic training." 

Before students were admitted 
to the professional program, they 
completed one year of observation 
in the training room. Observers 
compiled a notebook filled with 
policies and procedures, injury 
records, emergency action plans 
and other aspects of the training 
program. Observers also watched 
and learned from student trainers 
while they attended athletes. 

"I watch and try to learn and 
get to know the trainers, students 
and staff," Amy Van Horn, fresh- 

by Lindsay Porter 

man in secondary education, said. 
"I ask questions and help if they 
need it." 

Observers also practiced 
taping one another and completed 
laundry and paperwork for the 
training room. 

One component of the 
program was on-campus intern- 
ship experience. Students were 
assigned to a different intercol- 
legiate athletic team for four 

Jason Thomas, junior in ath- 
letic training, said he transferred 
to K- State because of the hands-

Athletic training majors 
stretched athletes, observed 
practices, traveled with teams 
to tournaments and games and 
looked at injures. 

"An athletic trainer is not a 
doctor," Goodman said. "You 
can't diagnose patients. To do 
that, you have to be a sports medi- 
cine doctor. We can just make an 
observation and recommend a

"I've done this several years in 
a row, so a lot of it is set in place," 
Ferguson said. "It's just a matter 
of pulling the last year's notebook 
out and following along." 

Although most teams con- 
sisted of department faculty and 
students, the Classic was also open 
to business-sponsored teams. 

The fastest team won the 
traveling trophy and a pizza party. 
The second two fastest times also 
received a pizza party. The depart- 
ment or local business with the 
most participants won a basket of 
cookies, Ferguson said. 

Some participants trained in 
preparation for the event. 

Dann Fisher, associate profes- 
sor of accounting, and Ferguson 
started a training program for 
first-time participants. They 
also helped those returning to 

the event who wanted to improve 
their time, Ferguson said. 

The race started between 
Ahearn Field House and the K- State 
Student Union and the course 
curved around campus. 

"A lot of people were slowing 
down around the hills," Richard 
Condray, senior in life sciences, 
said. "I was able to pass somebody." 

On the day of the race, 50 to 75 
volunteers arrived to help with the 
event. Kinesiology students had 
to participate or volunteer to be 
eligible for scholarships funded by 
the Classic, Ferguson said. 

Volunteers blocked streets, 
recorded times and collected run- 
ners' numbers in finishing order. 

"Once the race starts, it's 
fun," Ferguson said. "Every- 
thing beforehand is nerve rack- 
ing — wondering if everything 
will run smoothly. But the day 
of, seeing the runners out there, 
getting them started, and seeing

Students protest increased tuition, state budget cuts 

by Matt Gorney 

Students gathered in protest and chanted phrases such as, "give some 
money to K- State, education's really great," and "1, 2, 3, 4 — we will win 
the budget war," because of cuts in state funding to the university and 
recent tuition increases. 

For the second consecutive year, K- State tuition increased more than 
20 percent while the university lost $12 million in purchasing power. 
Pack the Library, Nov. 4, began with a rally outside Hale Library 
where students marched, chanted and carried signs. 

The event moved inside where attendees wrote letters to their dis- 
trict state representatives asking for legislative 
support for higher education. 

Pack the Library began in 2002 with more 
than 250 students who marched and more than 
500 who listened to the speakers and wrote 

"It brings awareness to senators and repre- 
sentatives," Jason Crabtree, senior in architec- 
tural engineering, said. "We're here and we are 
people too, and we need money." 

Lauren Vaughan, freshman in interior 
design, said budget cuts might eventually hurt enrollment numbers. 

"I think that it is important there are no more budget cuts," 
Vaughan said. "Since it's a public university, people shouldn't be dis- 
couraged from coming here because of high tuition." 

She said Pack the Library was a good forum for students to have 
their voices heard. 

"The best part would probably be the opportunity it presents to 
students and government officials," Vaughan said. "Both sides can learn 
from what the other has to say." 

After finishing their letters, attendees were treated to free pizza and 
pop. Congressional candidate Nancy Boyda, Kansas Sen. Steve Morris, 
Rep. Roger Reitz, Rep. Sydney Carlin, Rep. Jim Morrison and Kansas 
Board of Regents member Nelson Galle spoke to students at the library 
and addressed budget issues. 

Nathan Rochel, freshman in electrical engineering and member of 
Beta Theta Pi fraternity, said he hoped the event would serve as a wake- 
up call for officials. 

"My pledge class came; it's one of our activities we do just to get 
involved," Rochel said. "Hopefully they'll notice a lot of students care 
about it and devise a plan to help get some more funding for education."

West Stadium was initially barracks for service men and dorms for 
athletes. Since 1970, the Department of Art made West Stadium one of 
its homes, with the other being Willard Hall. 

The West Stadium facility included studios for ceramics, sculpture 
and painting. The second floor housed graduate students' studios. Each 
graduate student was allotted 200 square feet of private studio space. 
"(West Stadium's) been through some wear and tear," Starkey said, 
"so it's not a big deal if painters are there and make a mess. 
It's pretty decent space. There's enough room." 

Starkey came from Wisconsin to K- State to study art 
as a graduate student. He said he chose K- State because he 
wanted to see how his art would change by being away from 
familiar surroundings. 

The fact he would be getting his own studio space also 
influenced his decision, he said. 

"There's a specific place for me to work and that's nice," 
Starkey said. "I feel guilty if I'm not there." 

Having personal space meant graduate students had 
room to be creative, Starkey said. 
Students made their spaces comfortable and inspiring, he said. 
"I'll have music, art books or other works laid out," he said, "or you 
can bring other people in and see what they think of your work. You 
have to push yourself to create your own energy" 

Many found it conducive to work in West Stadium compared to

vacant. Photo by other locations. Matthew DeFord, graduate student in fine arts, said if 
Jeanel Drake ^e didn't have other things to do, he would have worked in West Sta- 
dium all the time. 

"I just have to do (art)," DeFord said. "I just have to. I love it. The 
best thing about graduate school is the opportunity — the opportunity 
to make, to do, to think." 

Although West Stadium offered creativity and personal space, stu- 
dent artists would not always be there. 

"West Stadium is on the chopping block," Duane Noblett, art depart- 
ment head, said. "Everything art related is to be moved over to Willard 
Hall in two to three years, and the inside of West Stadium gutted." 

DeFord was sad the art department was leaving West Stadium. 

"I'm glad it's after my time though," he said. "It may have wiring 
problems and leaks, but it's a nice place to work."

When six professors taught the 
same required course, deciding 
which section to take was difficult. 
However, Internet- savvy students 
had a possible advantage when 
making that decision — online 
professor evaluations. 

"There's a big issue with the 
use of online student ratings," 
said William Pallett, director of 
the Individual Development & 
Educational Assessment Center. 
"They're being used more and 
more for traditional face-to-face 

While the IDEA Center 
specialized in providing 
online evaluations for dis- 
tance courses, Web sites such as allowed 
students to evaluate and com- 
ment on professors at universities 
across the nation. As of Feb. 5, 262 
K- State professors were listed on 
the site. 

At the site, students rated profes- 
sors on five-point scales for easiness, 
helpfulness and clarity. They also 
had the option to leave comments 

designed to help other students 
decide which professors would best 
suit their needs. 

Additionally, a Student Gov- 
erning Association committee 
was investigating the possibility of 
creating a similar Web site specifi- 
cally for K- State. 

"When students enroll in 
classes, they ask other students 
if the class is good, what type of 
teaching style the teacher has, 
their attendance policy, tests, etc.," 
Erik Ankrom, technology coordi- 
nator for the president's cabinet, 
said. "Currently, it's a word-of- 
mouth process. This would just 
make the process easier." 

Ankrom, senior in manage- 
ment and information systems, 
said the teacher evaluations used 
in most classes were designed 
to benefit faculty and staff, not 
students. A Web site, however, 
would allow any student to see 
what others said about various 

"The results would be in a 
graph, (and) you could search for 

teachers by major," Ankrom said. 
"You could see all the teachers that 
are available for a certain course 
and see how they're rated." 

Roger Trenary, one of the 
professors rated most frequently 
on, said 
online evaluations could be help- 
ful if approached cautiously. 

"I'm not opposed to it, but I 
think it's subject to abuse," Tre- 
nary, economics instructor, said. 
"What's to stop any random person 1 
from putting something stupid on 
it? Students have the right to know 
something about the professor if 
the information is out there, but I 
think it's hard to do well because 
it's hard to control idiots." 

Ankrom said he expected K- 
State's Web site to be available as 
soon as possible. 

"I would hope this process 
is a system that would go online 
hopefully during the next school 
year," Ankrom said. "It's definitely 
a system that is in development, 
and we're asking for input from 
students and staff right now."

zoo gains redesigned

The snow leopard at Sunset 
Zoological Park currently

dedicated in the early '90s.

and agricultural engineer-

Field trips to the zoo were not 
just for grade -schoolers — just ask 
students in Kyle Mankin's introduc- 
tion to biological and agricultural 
engineering technology class. 

As a class project, Mankin, 
associate professor of biological 
and agricultural engineering, 
had his students design a habitat 
for the snow leopard 
exhibit at Sunset Zoo- 
logical Park. 

Working in pairs, 
students tackled the 
exhibit layout, feeding 
systems, environment 
and exhibit furniture. 
Mankin, who 
was a member of the Friends of 
Sunset Zoo Board of Directors, 
said he wanted the project to help 
students understand their future 
career field and to see the impor- 
tance and necessity of their other 

"I really try to make courses 
as real as possible to help prepare 

students for what they're going to 
be doing in their careers," Mankin 
said. "Textbook learning can 
only get you so far, and it's not 
very exciting. Getting your hands 
dirty and doing things out of the 
classroom is more of an emersion 
learning experience, and you learn 
more that's of relevance." 

Students met with zoo officials 
and toured the facility. 

"First of all, we went and did 
research," Dustin Pelton, freshman 
in agricultural technology manage- 
ment, said. "They were planning on 
making a new exhibit and thought it 
would be cool if the students got to 
give them some ideas." 

The students had to satisfy the 
needs of three customers while 
designing, said Jennifer Fund, 
sophomore in biological and agri- 
cultural engineering. 

"The zookeepers, the animals 
and the visitors were what we had 
to keep in mind," Fund said. "It's 
really important for the visitors to 

be comfortable and like what the 
exhibit looks like. 

"The snow leopards don't live 
in a green habitat, but the visitors 
like to see green in the exhibit 
because it makes them feel like the 
animal is more comfortable, even 
if it's not natural." 

Likewise, the groups had to 
address the animals' comfort, as well. 

"We saw what the cat was used 
to living in, and we went around 
the cats' needs," Pelton said. "The 
cats are used to high altitudes and 
living up in the mountains, so 
we gave it a mountain effect. We 
wanted the cat to feel like it's his 
own environment." 

The students presented their 
completed projects at the engi- 
neering Open House, April 3. 
After that, zoo officials could 
choose which of the students' 
plans they wanted to use. 

"I don't know if they'll take all 
(of our ideas)," Pelton said. "I'll be 
curious if they take a few of them."

in architecture, photographs

ally you want to know the

Seaton Hall building 
manager, said. "Where is 
the sun going to be when it 
is the hottest?" Mitchell said 
students often brought their 
models and other projects 
into the heliodon to take 
photos and find where the 
sun would hit their buildings 
at various times of the day.

The heliodon was a place in 
Seaton Hall for students to take 
models and use controlled lighting 
to find where the sun would cast 
shadows and direct sunlight on 
certain days of the year at certain 

"There is a switchboard that 
controls days of the year and 
hours from sunrise to sunset," 
Steven Rusk, senior in architec- 
ture, said. 

The switchboard included 
options for setting winter and 
summer solstices, and spring and 
fall equinoxes. 

Dennis Law, dean of the Col- 
lege of Architecture, Planning 
and Design, said the heliodon 
was intended to assist students 
with their understanding of the 
dynamics of natural light for 
architectural professions. 

The heliodon had been a 
useful tool since it was built in the 
mid-1960s, Ray Weisenburger, 
associate dean and professor, said. 
The heliodon was built because 
professor Henry Wright wanted it 
for his research, he said. 

"He thought it would be a 
good research facility," Weisen- 
burger said. "We have been using 
it ever since." 

David Mitchell, Seaton Hall 
building manager, said the 
heliodon was used for different 

"(It showed) how you can heat 
and cool your house if you have 
the correct overhang," Mitchell 
said. "Professors used it for shad- 
ing and shadowing, and first-year 
kids came in and learned about 
solar lighting." 

Contractors for a building 

near Crown Center in Kansas 
City, Mo., even used the heliodon 
to help find ways to incorporate 
sunlight throughout their build- 
ing, Mitchell said. 

The lights used in the heliodon 
were 250 -watt studio lights. 

"Fifteen or 18 years ago we 
changed them," Mitchell said. 
"They were a lot lower wattage. 
Now we get a lot more intensity 
for the sun." 

Mitchell and Weisenburger 
said there were computer pro- 
grams students could use, but the 
programs did not compare to the 

"There are a lot of heliodon - 
type things you can buy," Mitchell 
said, "but this is one of the few 
that you can actually walk into 
and put your model in and step 
back and look." 

Examining a model at a 
table in center of the heli- 
odon, Andrew Billing, and 
Adriana Molina, junior in 
architecture, pay attention 
to where light casts shad- 
ows on the model. "(We) 
look for solar heat gain 
coming through windows," 
Steven Rusk, senior in archi- 
tecture, said, "and where 
light needs to be blocked 
to prevent direct sun heat." 
Students also used the 
heliodon to find how much 
natural light they could get 
through windows without 
the use of artificial light.

Detectors basis for researc 

SMART Lab houses 




by Christy Setter 

Hidden in the basement of Ward Hall was K- State's Semiconductor 
Materials and Radiological Technologies Laboratory. 

The high-tech lab was dedicated to the research and development of 
new and innovative detector technologies. 

Students used the SMART Lab to work on individual tasks, but its 
primary function was to provide an adequate facility for students to 
develop government- and industrial-sponsored research projects. 

Douglas McGregor, associate professor of 
mechanical and nuclear engineering, said the 
lab was useful in several different aspects. 

"Since Sept. 11, Americans are very aware 
of the threat posed by terrorist organizations 
— we are always on guard to defend against 
any possible threats," Adam Graebner, junior 
in mechanical engineering, said. "The detec- 
tors that are made in the lab can be used to 
detect dirty bombs and monitor stockpiles of 
nuclear materials. The detectors are very small 
and can be employed in various ways so that 
our country can be a safe place to live." 

In 2002, the SMART Lab moved to K- State from its previous loca- 
tion at the University of Michigan. Since then, Graebner said research- 
ers gained the ability to create smaller and more efficient ways to detect 
neutrons and radiation. 

Several patents have been awarded to SMART Lab researchers, with 
several more pending. The students and faculty, in their short time 
using the lab, had already produced more than 40 papers. 

"I use (the labs) when I'm not in class, and I work full-time as a 
research employee," Walter McNeil, senior in mechanical engineering, 
said. "(Growing crystals) is a long process, so we stay pretty busy." 

McGregor said students using the lab should be more than prepared 
to step into a company environment. 

The SMART Lab proved to be beneficial to students and the univer- 
sity through the research conducted as a result of its addition. 

"The equipment that I get to work with is very expensive and com- 
plex," Graebner said. "Without the lab, I wouldn't be able to utilize that 
technology. It also excites me about different career opportunities that I 
can now pursue." 

Working with materials no 
bigger than their fingertips, 
students find that precise 
instruments are a neces- 
sity. The SMART Lab was 
equipped with several high- 
tech precision tools that 
aided in research. "The lab 
has many different systems 
necessary to actually create 
computer chips," Adam 
Graebner said. "The lab 
gives us, as researchers, 
the ability to find new ways 
to create smaller, more 
efficient ways to detect 
neutrons and radiation."

Since 1964, when he was in 
seventh grade, Charles Mehler, 
graduate student in speech, knew 
he loved theater. That year, his 
parents took him to see "My Fair 
Lady," and he was hooked, he said. 

"I walked out of that theater 
saying 'this is what I want to do,'" 
Mehler said. "I had been writing 
lyrics for musical theater since 
high school." 

Mehler chose to write a musi- 
cal for his master's project. He 
considered different pieces to pro- 
vide inspiration for his musical. 
At one point, Mehler was going 
to adapt "It's a Wonderful Life" 
because of its great debate on the 
meaning of life, he said. 

Instead, he based his musical 
on Bernard Shaw's "Major Bar- 
bara," and titled it "Wealth, and 
How Not to Avoid It." 

"Charlie took that story fur- 

ther and delved deeper into the 
histories of each character," Chad 
Howard, junior in theater, said. 
"All in all, I had a blast working 
with the material." 

Howard portrayed the roles 
of both Adolphus and Todger 
in Mehler's musical during the 
staged reading at Manhattan Arts 
Center, Jan. 30-31. 

Mehler started writing his 
piece fall 2002 and had a first draft 
soon afterwards, but he said it 
lacked the punch line the current 
version had. He made changes, 
and did major rewrites to accom- 
pany cast changes and whatever 
else was not working. 

"At one point, a phrase was 
used with God's name in vain," 
Mehler said. "It played, and I told 
myself, 'no, it doesn't belong in 
this play.'" 

Since the first staged read- 

Modern Languages 

by Kristen Day 

ing, the phrase had been changed 
and Mehler said he truly felt they 
could do the reading without 
offending anyone. 

Regardless of how many 
alterations Mehler made to his 
musical, his professor, Sally 
Bailey, assistant professor in 
speech communication, theater 
and dance, said it made sense 
for him to do a musical for his 
master's project. 

"Musicals are Charlie's specific 
interest in playwriting," she said. 
"His dream was to write 'the great 
American musical.'" 

Bailey said it was not required 
for graduates to have a staged 
reading of their play. 

"Having a play that was in 
good enough shape for a staged 
reading was a plus," Bailey said. 
"(It was) an excellent experience 
for the playwright."

Rarely could a student take an 
aspect of their daily routine — an 
aspect they voluntarily did and 
enjoyed — and receive academic 
credit for it. 

Students in "Aerobic Dancing 
and Exercise" met in the Nata- 
torium twice a week. Some said 
they went to add a new or differ- 
ent aspect to their schedule, while 
others needed one hour of extra- 
curricular credit. 

"I have my routine at the rec," 
Emily Borel, sophomore in family 
studies and human services, said, 
"but it doesn't include aerobics, so 
this helps mix it up a bit." 

Vanessa Gower, sophomore 
in business administration, said 
friends advised her to take the 
class to fill an extra-curricular 

"I have a tough schedule this 
semester," Gower said. "So I 
thought I'd throw in something 
that would be new and useful." 

Geared toward getting people 
moving, the class served as an 
introduction to various formats 
of group exercise, Sara Hillard, 
instructor and graduate student in 
kinesiology, said. 

"I try to give them a variety 
of exercises like floor and step 
aerobics, water aerobics, yoga and 
strength training," Hillard said. 
"We cover a little bit of every- 

Despite the cost of one credit 
hour, Hillard said the 40 available 
spaces filled quickly. 

"Taking it for credit gives 
people an incentive to go to class," 
Gower said. "If you go to the rec, 
it's up to you to keep going, but 
if you are getting credit for it, it 
makes you go. Also, we read about 
things so we actually learn about 
what we are doing." 

Hillard said in addition to 
aerobic exercises, she taught topics 
such as finding a target heart rate,

muscle groups, safety, form, relax- 
ation and stress management. 

"We take our pulse while we're 
exercising so we know what we 
should aim for," Borel said. "It 
helps me get a better idea of how 
hard I should work out and it gives 
me a better perspective of how to 
take care of my body." 

Stephanie Caouette, instructor 
and graduate student in kinesi- 
ology, said both beginners and 
experienced students enrolled in 
the class. 

"You can pace yourself as you 
go," Caouette said. "We show 
modifications to every exercise, 
so they have an option. We grade 
mostly on participation." 

Hillard said she almost always 
has an all-female class, partly due 
to the name of the course. 

"It really is a misnomer," she 
said. "It's not a dance class at all. 
It's more of a group fitness session, 
not necessarily aerobic dancing."

members, Straton Howard,

to examine the human 
body. The team operated 
twice as fast as the rest of 
the class. "The first couple 
of weeks are rigorous," 
Jonathan Mein, senior in 
nutritional sciences, said.

the material easier to under-

The 160 students enrolled in 
"Structure and Function of the 
Human Body" attended five hours 
of lecture and six hours of lab each 
week. Each semester, 30-40 stu- 
dents had the privilege of spend- 
ing additional hours studying 
and working in labs as part of the 
Cadaver Team. 

"I can't equate it with hard 
work, because I learned that much 
more and that much better," said 
Jonathan Mein, senior in nutri- 
tional sciences and fall 2003 team 
member. "I learn better hands-on, 
and when you are doing the dis- 
secting and cutting out, you are 
the first person to see it. You get a 

chance to get your hands dirty." 

Students in Human Body 
learned anatomy by studying 
cadavers, which Cadaver Team 
members dissected. 

"It gets you out of your com- 
fort zone because you're dissecting 
a dead body," said Alison Dopps, 
senior in biology and spring 2002

K- State was part of only 5 per- 
cent of undergraduate institutions

Sara Reppert, lab instructor and 
graduate student in human nutri- 
tion. "It gives them an advantage 
in professional schools." 

Human Body was a required 
course for many kinesiology, 
dietetics and pre-health majors, 
but students on the Cadaver Team 
did not receive extra credit for 
additional course work. 

Students interested in the 
Cadaver Team submitted an appli- 
cation stating grade point average, 
biology courses completed and 
interest in the team. 

"Usually there is a lot of inter- 
est," Reppert said. "There is a lot 
of history to it. Many students 
heard about it from friends or 

She said other students 
became interested in the team 
when their high school anatomy 
and physiology classes visited the 
Human Body class. 

"Some of the applications say, 
'it's been my dream since my high 
school came here,'" Reppert said. 

During the first three weeks 
of lab, Cadaver Team members 
learned six weeks of material 
because they helped teach anat- 
omy to their classmates. Team 
members also took anatomy 
exams before the rest of the class 
to ensure they knew the mate- 
rial they would teach to other 
students. Team members had to 
maintain above an 80 -percent 
average on the exams to remain 
on the team. 

Since the 70s, the Depart- 
ment of Biology had one or two 
cadavers each year. However, they 
were originally used in upper-level 
classes only. 

The class received three new 
cadavers each semester. They also 
kept one cadaver from the previ- 
ous semester. 

"Once you get into the cadav- 
ers, you start learning more about 
them," Mein said. "Not every 
cadaver is the same. There are new 
things to discover. You discover 
their lifestyles and how they took 
care of themselves. Last semester, 
we had a lady with a false knee. It's 
just interesting to see." 

Mein said being part of the 
Cadaver Team was beneficial 
because he learned the course 
material much better and it was 
knowledge he planned on using in 
his career. 

"I would recommend it to 
anybody interested," said Shannon 
Simmons, senior in animal sci- 
ences and industry and fall 2003 
team member. "It's not for every- 
body. You have to have a personal 
preference and mentality, but if 
somebody is wanting in the medi- 
cal field, it is definitely something 
they should be a part of." 

While taping the Purple 
Power Hour sports show, 
Nicholas Steffen, senior in 
speech, zooms the camera 
in on Sean Purcell, senior in 
mass communications. "It's a 
lot of fun just to sit down with 
(the athletes) and just talk," 
Purcell said. "A lot of the 
sports shows try too hard. It's 
more fun trying to find out 
about these peoples' lives 
and backgrounds and per- 
sonalities in a conversation."

Purple Power Hour, a student- 
produced sports show, focused on 
the person behind the jersey. It 
featured K- State athletes outside 
their sports roles. 

"We wanted to do a show that 
highlighted student athletes and 
showed them on more of a per- 
sonal level," Chris Olsen, sopho- 
more in mass communications, 
said. "(I like) showing (that) these 
guys are normal people like you 
and me." 

Sean Purcell, senior in mass 
communications, said the show 
was a chance to teach younger 
students about the broadcast tele- 
vision medium and that it was a 
good way to practice their skills. 

"I really enjoy the opportunity 
to give younger journalism stu- 
dents experience," he said. "That 
was definitely a goal of mine." 

After scrambling to find a 
replacement when an interview 
subject failed to show up, Purcell 

Agricultural Student 


said he learned a valuable lesson. 
"That's another kind of thing 
I learned," he said. "You always 
have to have something in your 
back pocket just in case something 
goes wrong." 

Another hurdle was some- 
times getting the person being 
interviewed to be more open on 
camera, Olsen said. 

"(It's hardest) when the person 
is shy," Olsen said. "It makes it 
hard to interview when they're 
closed off. When the person is 
nervous, it's probably the hardest 

Purple Power Hour aired 
monthly. Each show included 
interviews with varsity athletes 
and local media, and a calendar 
segment highlighted upcoming 
sports events. 

Jessica Anderson, senior in 
mass communications, was one of 
the upcoming- event readers. 

"I go in, they put a mic on me, 

and I read off the teleprompter," 
Anderson said. "It's some good 
exposure. It's a good learning 
experience — it'll look good on 
resume tapes." 

Anderson said she wanted to 
have more people watch the show. 
"I just wish more people would 
watch," she said. "Nobody knows 
they're out there and that K- State 
students produced them." 

Even though some nights were 
long, Olsen said those nights were 
his favorites. 

"My favorite memory would 
have to be me and Sean hanging 
out, editing," Olsen said. "Just get- 
ting slap-happy towards the end. 
Those late nights editing are my 
most fond memory." 

Olsen said he thanked K- State 
for giving him the opportunity to 
work on the show. 

"It's probably one of the 
greatest experiences I've had in 
college," he said.

on Capitol H 

Members of Students for the 
Right to Life rode 22 hours in a 
bus to walk for one hour. 

The pro-life organization went 
to Washington, D.C., Ian. 18-23, 
for the Right to Life March that 
ended on Capitol Hill, near the 
U.S. Supreme Court. 

The first march occurred in 
1973 after the Roe v. Wade deci- 
sion legalized abortion, Karen 
Jantz, junior in secondary educa- 
tion, said. 

"It's definitely a worthy cause," 
she said. "They're making a lot 
of progress in pro-life. Someone 
has to stand up for it. Hopefully it 
affected the people who saw us." 

While in Washington, D.C., 
members visited monuments and 
memorials, or volunteered at a 
soup kitchen. 

"Some of us also went to a 
Basillica Mass — a Catholic Mass 
that has hundreds of priests and 
was about three hours long," Jantz 
said. "There were tons of people 

Jantz said she estimated 
around 100,000 people attended 
the march to Capitol Hill. 

"The march was really amaz- 
ing," Renee Wullschleger, fresh- 
man in feed science and industry, 
said. "Wherever I looked, there 
were people. People were singing 
hymns or walking with their kids. 
There was no tension." 

To reach Washington, D.C., 
the organization joined a group 
from the University of Kansas and 
shared three buses. Bus occupants 
were a mix of students from each 
college so they would have the

"It was sort of a bonding 
experience," Sarah Truman, 
sophomore in elementary educa- 
tion, said. "It was a pilgrimage. We 
were going to Washington, D.C., 
for a cause. It's important to do 
this, to experience something that 
relates to the group. It's the biggest 
pro-life thing." 

Jantz said she was impressed 
by the number of people attending 
the rally. 

"If (our members) had any 
question about whether abor- 
tion was right or wrong, by seeing 
(the march), this would make up 
their mind," Jantz said. "It gives a 
tremendous sense of hope. There 
were so many people there. It's an 
incredible, worthy cause."

When it came to fad diets, Dianna Schalles, nutritionist at Lafene 
Health Center, said a person should ask two things: would it last, and 
was it worth the cost to one's health. 

"People can be fit and not healthy," she said. "That's my fear. These 
diets are sending the wrong message." 

Schalles worked with women who had body- image issues and eating 
disorders and wanted to see something change this problem. 

"The general population was so confused about healthy eating," 
Schalles said. "I wanted to start some kind of campus outreach to 
increase awareness and (to show) how to improve body image." 

Schalles and Kendra Glassman, a former student, came up with a 
group called SNAC, or Sensible Nutrition and Body Image Choices. 
The group consisted of dietetics and nutrition students who wanted to 
promote awareness of these issues. 

To inform students about body image and eating disorders, SNAC 
gave presentations throughout K- State. 

"We did some for fraternities and sororities and some of the (resi- 
dence) halls," Kimberly Kerschen, senior in dietetics, said. "We would 
like to see it in the high schools and grade schools to make them aware 
of it sooner." 

Kerschen said the presentations covered what an eating disorder 
was, different types of disorders, signs of a disorder and how to help 
someone who might have had a problem. 

"We promoted general healthy food choices," said Tiffany Gehlen, 
president and senior in nutrition and exercise science. "Everything is 
okay in moderation. There isn't one best way or one best diet for every- 

Schalles said being there for everyone was more important than the 
number of students SNAC helped. 

"We always said if there was one person we reached and prevented 
them from going through the pain of an eating disorder, then we met 
our goal," Schalles said. 

Gehlen said SNAC's overall goals were to increase awareness about 
body image and eating disorders and to provide a way for people to get 
help if they needed it. 

Even cliched sayings were important to keep in mind, Gehlen said. 
"Numbers don't matter, it's the inside that counts," she said. "Be 
accepting of people. People come in all shapes and sizes, and if you're 
living a healthy lifestyle, that is what's important."

Carol Gould, director of Kansas Center for Rural Initiatives, said 
yoga held other valuable health benefits as well. 

"It has been very rewarding to watch participants who are not into 
the fitness scene gain confidence," Gould said. "They become more 
aware of their body and realize that they are starting to feel better." 

Yoga could positively affect physiological, psychological and cogni- 
tive functions, said Trisha Lamb Feuerstein of the International Associa- 
tion of Yoga Therapists. 

It helped decrease pulse rates and blood pressure and improved car- 
diovascular health. Mental functions such as attention, concentration 
and memory could also be improved. In addition to any physical health 
benefits, yoga was known to boost body image and self-confidence. 

Since 2000, the Campaign for Non -Violence worked with several 
organizations on campus to promote a safer environment for students 
and staff, which included supporting activities such as yoga. 

"Yoga focuses on inner peace and tranquility," Deane Lehmann, 
biology research assistant, said. "By incorporating inner peace, one 
learns to project and promote outer peace as well. Also, so much vio- 
lence seems to be a result of inner hatred directed outward. By learning 
to love yourself, you learn to love others." 

Yoga helped promote non-violence because it was peaceful, and it 
focused energy away from stress and conflicts, Gould said. 

Anyone was welcome to participate, and with increasing popularity 
of the discipline, Susan Allen said the group should grow. 

Lehmann said it was a warm setting where everyone could joke and 
laugh with each other. 

"We created an environment of friendship and support," Gould said. 
"We all just slow down for a while as we appreciate each other and the 
sense of good will and community created within our group." 


The science of yoga has developed into a number of techniques, these are among 

the most popular varieties. 

Bhakti Yoga: The way of devotion, devotion to a supreme being absorbing the 

emotions and self in pure love. 
Hatha Yoga: The physical path, using the body through asana and pranayama to 

control the mind and senses. 
Jnana Yoga: The way of knowledge, studying God and learning to discriminate 

between illusion and the reality that all is God. 
Karma Yoga: The way of right action, serving without the motivation of obtaining 

the results of labor. 
Kundalini Yoga: The path of energy, arousing the energy stored in the chakras 

through breathing and movement. 
Tantric Yoga: The feminine path, worshiping the goddess energy and seeing the 

body as the temple of the divine.

Ag Fest gives campus taste of 

Participants pinned calves, 
pushed an old farm truck, pitched 
loose hay and raced wheelbarrows 
while blindfolded. 

Those activities were included 
in the 2003 Cowboy Olympics. 
The KSU Rodeo Club sponsored 
the festivities, March 26, at Weber 
Arena. The event was part of the 
annual Ag Fest at K-State. 

The purpose of the Cowboy 
Olympics was to teach people 
from non- agricultural back- 
grounds about aspects of farm life, 
co -chair Grant Boyer, said 

"I believe the purpose is to 
let kids with non-farm back- 
grounds become acquainted with 
the things farm kids do in a fun 
and fashionable manner," Boyer, 
senior in animal sciences and 

industry, said. 

Twenty five to 30 four-person 
teams each paid $26 to participate, 
Boyer said. Each event was timed, 
and the team with the lowest over- 
all time won. 

Jeff Brothers, whose Alpha 
Gamma Rho team placed third 
overall, said his favorite event was 
the lawn mower race.

Endless commitment to success 
reveals steadfast desire, 
temperate hard work 

Between practicing and selling donuts and T-shirts, the Women's 
Club Softball team stayed busy. They worked to fund their first appear- 
ance at the National Club Softball Tournament in Los Angeles by col- 
lecting garbage at Bramlage Coliseum and hosting a youth clinic. 

In preparation, the girls met Wednesday and Thursday nights at 
Ahearn Field House to work on fielding, throwing and hitting. With 
their spring season lasting February through April, the women said they 
worked hard to prepare for the national competition. 

"I'm very excited," Lacey Spain, senior in sociology, said. "This is 
my last year to play softball, and what a great way to end our season. It's 
rewarding to see your team able to play at a national level." 

Despite the time commitment, Kayla Linnebur, freshman in open- 
option, said the season was rewarding. 

"My teammates are what make softball fun," Kasey Stadler, presi- 
dent and senior in secondary education, said. "Playing softball gives all 
of us a chance to have a great deal of fun while remaining competitive 
and relieving the stresses that come with school and work." 

None of the women received financial help for playing softball, and 
they had to be willing to spend their own money on team activities, such 
as practicing at batting cages. 

"I would have to say that our best asset is having dedicated players," 
Stadler said. "These girls give up all sorts of free time to practice, play 
games, travel and fund raise." 

Linnebur said the team tried to stay focused and positive so they 
could work on things that needed improving. 

"There are always things that need work — we always need to be 
more organized, more conditioned and have more money," Stadler said. 
"It is amazing how our team has stuck together."

With shared ideas, Libertarian duo hosts 
radio talk show about political topics 

On Super Bowl Sunday, as 
snowy weather worsened, Liberty 
Advocates hosted their inaugural 
radio talk show. 

Responding to advertisements 
for talk show time slots from 
KSDB-FM 91.9, two members 
decided to co-host a political talk 

"We were pretty nervous; 
it was our first show," C. Travis 
Bradshaw, senior in computer 
science, said. "Most of the people 
I've talked to said they liked it, but 
they might be biased since they 
know me." 

In their first show, Feb. 1, the 
two discussed causes and effects of 
big-business problems, nationally 
and locally. Post- show responses 
said bringing big issues closer to 
home was helpful, Matthew Hoo- 

Black Student 

sier, graduate student in computer 
science, said. 

"Most libertarians are abstract 
thinkers, so we try to gravitate 
towards that," Bradshaw said. "We 
use great stories and anecdotes 
and try to talk about liberty right 
here in town." 

On Feb. 1, they discussed 
eminent domain — the power of 
the government to seize private 
property belonging to its citi- 
zens. Hoosier and Bradshaw gave 
examples from several Kansas 
cities, including Manhattan. 

"Unfortunately for the citizens 
of Kansas, their state is one of the 
worst abusers of eminent domain, 
especially in comparison to other 
states with similar population 
size," Bradshaw said during the 

In order to be fully prepared 
for their inaugural show, Matthew 
Hoosier and Bradshaw spent their 
free time in the preceding week 
researching, Cole Hoosier, sopho- 
more in computer science, said. 
"Now they have to do it all 
again (for next week's show)," he

rehearsed beforehand, and

"It was easier than when we 
practiced in the office," Brad- 
shaw said. "We thought we were 
doomed, but I think it will get 
easier as time goes on. I definitely 
had a good time. I'm looking for-

In an attempt to promote and improve literacy, members of Mortar 
Board read to children at Manhattan day- care centers. 

Once a week, members read to children at Head Start and the Man- 
hattan Day Care and Learning Centers Inc. This year's national project 
for Mortar Board was "Reading is Leading." 

"I think (the children) got the chance to be creative," Peter Carter, 
vice president and senior in biology, said. "It gave them a chance to 
relate and brainstorm." 

After reading "Cat and 
Mouse in the Snow," Cath- 
erine Vershelden, senior in 
finance, sits on the floor with

Mortar Board was a national honor society with membership based 
on scholarship, leadership and service. 

While she did not know if the reading program would leave a lasting 
impression on the children, Catherine Verschelden, president and senior 
in finance, said she enjoyed the interaction. 

"I think it's really fun," she said. "You don't get to be around that 
much fun and energy and spirit. They melt your heart." 

Charles Anderson, a lead teacher at Manhattan Day Care and Learn- 

ing Centers Inc., said the program benefited both him and the children. 

"It gives the kids a chance to interact with other people, and it breaks the 
monotony of me teaching," he said. "They get to learn from other people, too." 

Anderson said members of Mortar Board tried to bring a theme of 
diversity into the classroom with the books they chose to read. After 
each reading, members donated the books to the classroom's library. 

"Kids are kind of inspiring," Carter said. "They have an innocence 
about them." 

Crammed in a small room in 
the Delta Sigma Phi house, 
Super Smash Brothers Club 
members take turns compet- 
ing in a four-man, free-for- 
all competition, Feb. 8. The 
meeting was the first time 
members played together 
and were able to gauge 
each other's skills. Marcus 
Judy, founder and junior 
in biology, said he wanted 
the club to be more than 
just guys playing games all 
the time. "I think it's a way 
to get active on campus 
and, at the same time, make

in the game. "I've played 

the game a lot with my 

friends back home," Marcus 

Judy said. "I was always 

one of the better players, 

and I was just curious if 

there were other people 

out there. I sort of feel like

They did not join to help 
others by doing community 
service. They did not join because 
they thought it would look good 
on a resume. They did not join to 
network with other students des- 
tined for a similar career path. 

They joined for love of the 
game — for love of the video 
game, that is. 

When Marcus Judy began 
advertising his pet-project, Super 
Smash Brothers Club, his phone 
rang off the hook. 

"I didn't know what kind of 
response or feedback we'd get 
from advertising for the club, 
but, within just an hour or two, 
we already had a lot of feedback," 
Judy, president and junior in 
biology, said. "All the people that 
called had seen the flier, got to a 
phone and called us." 

Within a week, 25 students 
responded, Charlie Miller, co- 
founder and sophomore in politi- 
cal science, said. 

Judy founded the club fall 
2003 and planned to get things 
started after students returned 
from winter break. He began 
spring 2004 by placing flyers in 
the K- State Student Union and 

around the residence halls. 

The purpose of the club, as the 
name indicated, was to play Super 
Smash Bros. Melee, a Nintendo 
GameCube game where play- 
ers entered into head-to -head 
competition as different Nintendo 
characters, such as Mario, Zelda, 
Kirby or Pikachu. 

Before the club's inception, 
Judy and Miller spent their free 
time playing Super Smash Bros. 
Melee with members of their fra- 
ternity, Delta Sigma Phi. 

"I think, ultimately, Marcus 
and I just decided that it would be 
a unique idea to start a club like 
this," Miller said. "Also, it was 
getting kind of boring playing by 
ourselves all the time. Marcus is 
really good, and he was looking 
for some competition." 

The desire for stiffer competi- 
tion drew Robert K. Johnson to 
the club. 

"I'm pretty good," Johnson, 
freshman in computer science, 
said. "I like challenges, so I wanted 
to see if anyone could give me a 
good fight." 

Judy said he started the club as 
much for the social aspect as for 
his love of the game. 



Premiered in: Kirby 's Dreamland 
Special moves: swallow, hammer, final cutter. 
"I think the reason I like Kirby more than the other 
characters is because of the look on the other 
players' faces when something that cute and 
adorable kicks them into the air and hits them 
seven times before they hit the ground," Jacob 
Walker, sophomore in open-option, said.

"It's good, clean fun," he said. 
"I'm not a huge partier, and I'm 
known in my fraternity as one 
of the lesser guys in the party- 
ing department. (This way), I'll 
still have a chance to be social 
and meet guys from all over 

Judy and Miller 
agreed Super Smash 
Bros. Melee was, 
in fact, good, clean 
fun. Although the game 
involved fighting and was 
rated "T for Teen," Judy said it was 
much less gory than many other 
video games. 

"I really like the game because 
it's not like your basic shoot-'em- 
up game with blood and guts, 
it's just a fun competition," Judy 
said. "There are so many different 
strategies and ways to play. Each 
character or each player really has 
its own personality." 
Miller agreed. 

"I don't have any problems with 
Grand Theft Auto and games like 
that, but, quite honestly, I get bored 
with them," he said. "I prefer to 
play games like this or racing games 
where you don't have to worry 
about chopping people's heads off."

Karate relieves stress, 
teaches members self-defense, 
importance of avoiding conflicts 

Meeting for two hours twice a week, the Karate Club learned and 
practiced a style of karate, Okinawan Goju-Ryu Karate-do. 

"There's been a variety of reasons that people check the club out," Char- 
lene Anspaugh, branch master, said. "Some are just interested in getting in 
shape and building flexibility. I myself was interested in self-defense." 

Anspaugh said the club's focus was to teach members to use karate 
skills as a last resort. 

"We promote avoiding the situation," she said. "If they take a swing 
at you, then you should defend yourself. As far as I know, no one in our 
club has had to use it." 

Even though the need to put her skills to use had not risen, Lesley 
Wright, co -president and junior in mechanical engineering, said she felt 
safer knowing them. 

"(I learned) how to defend myself, how to be more self-confident," 
Wright said. "I'm not so scared to walk across campus at night any- 

Megan Bauman, senior in fine arts, said she also felt safer. 

"I feel more aware of my surroundings," she said. "I do feel a little 
more protected, because I know the environment around me a lot better 
than I used to." 

Wright said she had wanted to learn karate after seeing the club at 
the activities carnival. 

An advertisement prompted Bauman to further investigate Karate 

Club, she said. 

"I've always kind of been interested in (karate), and I saw it in the paper 
and decided to check it out," Bauman said. "From there, it just kept on going." 

The physical benefits of karate were obvious, she said. 

"You have a great amount of exercise," Bauman said. "You learn a 
great amount of balance and coordination, even if you don't have those 

to begin with."

branch master, leads the 
club in an end-of-ses-

members trained to be able 
to fight, Anspaugh said they 
also learned to avoid con- 
frontations. "I encourage 
them to downplay (their 
abilities)," Anspaugh said.

wow, you're in karate.' Try 
not to flaunt it." Photo by

Charlene Anspaugh said fitness was a benefit of learning karate. 

"You don't have to be the most physically fit to do it, but it helps," 
she said. "You get pretty sore, but you get a lot out of it." 

Learning karate, Bauman said, has taught her to surpass limitations. 

"It really shows you how hard you can go physically as well as men- 
tally," she said. "It teaches you a lot about yourself. I've learned I can 
push myself a lot more physically and mentally than I thought possible." 

In addition to learning karate, members of the club became friends. 

"We've also developed as quite a close network of friends," Ans- 
paugh said. "We've had a few (members) who met in the club and are 
now roommates." 

Lesley Wright said to keep one thing in mind during practice. 

"Don't hurt the other person," she said. "Because then they will hurt 
you back."

Before splitting up into 
smaller Bible study groups, 
members of Chinese 
Christian Fellowship sing 
an opening song, which is 
displayed on an overhead 
projector in the basement 
of Grace Baptist Church. 
The group began each 
meeting with song and 
prayer. "We especially 
pray that there are more 
believers of Jesus Christ in 
China," Congjian Zhang, 
president and graduate 
student in mechanical engi- 
neering, said. "Chinese 
people need God's love."

In the basement of Grace Baptist Church, the nursery filled and 
children ran around while adults greeted one another. It was not Sunday 
morning, and people were not speaking English. 

For more than 30 years, Grace Baptist Church provided the Man- 
hattan Chinese Christian Fellowship with a place for Friday night Bible 
study and worship. 

"I came here in 1991, and there were not more than 10 
people," said Shing Chang, adviser and associate profes- 
sor in industrial and manufacturing systems engineering. 
"Now we have doubled and tripled. We have between 40-50 
attend Bible studies." 

Opening songs, Bible study and conversations were 
entirely in Chinese. 

"This club is the only Chinese -speaking Bible study 
group in Manhattan," said Congjian Zhang, president and 
graduate student in mechanical engineering. "We are very eager to share Amidst the occasional 

whimpers of children, JinXin 

the good news of Jesus Christ to those who want to know about him. 

This is even more important to those who stay in Manhattan but can 
only know Chinese, for example, some older visitors." 

The group was comprised of Chinese Manhattan residents, K- State 
faculty and students, and family members visiting from China. 

"There are older ladies who are parents of students who come and 
visit," Chang said. "They don't speak English at all." 

Chang said he thought about 10 percent of the Chinese population 
in Manhattan was Christian. 

Although the organization was a cornerstone of the Chinese commu- 
nity for 30 years, 2003 was its first year as a registered student organization. 

"We have five or six students in the Bible study," Chang said. "We 
used to have a lot of Chinese students, but since 9-11, the number has 
dropped because it is harder to get a visa." 

The organization had a close relationship with Dr. Bob Taussig, 
founder of Helping International Students, which provided interna- 
tional students with friends in the community Taussig and his wife 
invited Chinese people who wanted to learn the Bible to their home 
Sunday nights for discussions, teaching and dinner. 

Gao, graduate student in 
pathobiology, takes care of 
Emily Wang in the nursery 
of Grace Baptist Church. 
While the adults studied 
Bible verses in small groups, 
the children either stayed in 
the nursery or participated in 
a youth Bible study. "I think 
it's a good experience to 
gain teaching and working 
experience with kids who 
are bicultural," said Amanda 
Hardin, senior in cross- 
cultural ministry at Manhat- 
tan Christian College. Photo

"Some have never seen the Bible," Dr. Bob Taussig said. "You say the 
word God and they say, 'what's that?' When they do really decide they 
want to be followers of God, they become faithful attendees of CCR" 

Taussig said it was important for them to hear the message in their 
own language. 

"Everything runs smoother in your first language," Shing Chang 
said. "It is closer to the heart." 

During the spring semester, the group studied the book of Mark. 
Each week a different member led the Bible study. 

Group members sat in a circle and took turns reading verses in the 
first chapter of Mark. Then they formed groups of three and four to dis- 
cuss sections of the chapter. They discussed three things: observations, 
interpretations and application, Chang said. 

While the adults studied in Chinese, the children split into two 
groups and were taught in English by Manhattan Christian College stu- 
dents Amanda Hardin, senior in cross cultural ministry, and graduate 
Dave Boeding. 

Hardin said Bible study helped children and parents stay connected. 

"They really appreciated what we do because they weren't raised in 
the culture that their kids are," she said. "(The lessons in English) would 
be more relevant to (the kids) and what they do in school. It helps them 
to co -exist in the two areas of their lives." 

After the Bible study, members shared a prayer and congregated for 
cookies and drinks. David Wang, research associate in chemistry, said 
the group was a good community for Chinese Christians and helped 
strengthen his belief in Christianity. 

"You cannot have a strong faith without (being) surrounded by 
brothers and sisters," Zhang said. "One of the biggest commands in both 
the Old and New Testaments is to love one another. A strong support 
group encourages everyone to be good lesus followers."

single combat with Mike 
Martin, Manhattan resident, 
during the Little Apple Fes- 
tival in City Park, Sept. 21. 
Brown and members of the 
Society for Creative Anach- 
ronisms displayed battles 
during the Medieval era by 
fighting with padded armor 
and wooden weapons. 
"You have to be cleared 
to fight, to prove you know 
how to safely give and 
take blows," Brown said.

The Shire of the Spinning Winds, set in the Midwestern Kingdom 
of Calontir, was home to the Manhattan chapter of the International 
Society for Creative Anachronisms. 

"Calontir covers Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri and a little bit of 
Arkansas," Amberly Brown, freshman in biology, said. "Our group, the 
Shire of the Spinning Winds, is the local community." 

At the Little Apple Festival, Sept. 21, the Society re-enacted pre-17th 
century life. The group attempted to replicate exact details of the era. 

"In the arts and sciences tent, we had a bunch of scrolls and games 
from before the 17th century," Brown said. "We did calligraphy and oil 
painting and had the scribes display all their work." 

The Society also staged fighting demonstrations, wore authentic 
costumes and made functioning suits of armor to use in battle. 

"I built my armor from aluminum street signs, aluminum siding 
and leather," Brown said. "You have to make armor if you want to be 
able to join in the fights. The swords we fight with are unsharpened but 
still unpadded. The pole arms and axes are all padded for protection. 
But once you get your stuff made, you can go out and fight someone." 

Some members specialized in the construction of suits of armor. 

"I've only constructed one chain-mail suit, and that was enough," 
Joshua Warren, senior in secondary education, said. "After that, I've 
been making plate armor. I do most of it without an oven, just work- 
ing the metal cold on an anvil. I use an old washbasin to pound out the 
curve of the breastplate. The only part I can't make is the piece that fits 
over the calf, because it has to taper down around the ankle." 

Members had to be deemed capable of fighting safely before being 
allowed to fight. Combat was not the only reason members participated. 

"It's fun, and I can't think of a better sport," Amanda Mosteller, 
junior in secondary education, said. "But I love the history part of it. I 
love doing the research." 

Members researched period names to use for their characters. 

"The name I am researching is Artemisia," Mosteller said. "She was 
the first woman to ever be admitted to the Academy of Florence. That 
place was to art, in those days, what London was for music in the '60s." 

The Society was organized similarly to the culture of the period it 

"There are Knight Marshals, who are in charge of other marshals, 
like archery and equine," Brown said. "The only requirement to take an 
office is to be a paying member, but the ones who get the positions are 
usually the most experienced in their field." 

After battling during the 
Manhattan Little Apple Fes 
tival Michael Bethea, senior 
in secondary education, 
takes a rest. Bethea took 
part in the sword fighting 
demonstrations hosted by 
the Society for Creative 
Anachronisms as Lord Ken- 
rick Dryden. Bethea was 
one of the few students to 
participate in the first day o 
the festival because it took 
place during the football 
game against Marshall.

The trip to Washington, D.C, 
was a first for Reserve Officer 
Training Corp students. 

Robert Garven, senior in 
political science, and Mistee 
Richardson, senior in computer 
engineering, traveled to Washing- 
ton, D.C, Oct. 4-7. 

The K- State Army ROTC 
representatives attended lectures 
at the Association of the United 
States Army Conference. 

"Not very many cadets get to 
go because it's a rather expensive 
trip," Richardson said. "We were 
funded through our subchapter of 
AUSA (Association of the United 
States Army) here at K- State." 

Richardson and Garven were 
chosen to attend because of their 
senior leadership, grade point 
average, extra curricular partici- 
pation and high standing on the 
merit list, Richardson said. 

"Bob is considered a distin- 
guished military graduate, that 
means he's in the top 20 percent 
in the country in the ROTC," said 


Captain Cathi Cherry, military 
science assistant professor and trip 
sponsor. "Mistee wasn't assessed 
in that same time span, but she 
is the Redondo Commander and 
performs well." 

The purpose of the convention 
was for civilian and military per- 
sonnel to gather and discuss new 
developments, procedures and 
advancements in the Army. 

The conference offered lec- 
tures covering topics from missile 
defense to family planning. 

"Our section of the confer- 
ence was related directly to ROTC 

— that's basically what our 
speaker talked about," Garven 
said. "The developments in the 
Army and how they collect (ideas) 
on future leadership. Moderniza- 
tion requires no great proficiency 

— just great leadership." 

During part of the conference, 
attendees visited information 
booths and vendors trying to sell 
products to the military. Mili- 
taries from other countries also 

by Jenny Shoemaker 

attended the lecture. 

"(My favorite part was) seeing 
soldiers and officers from other 
countries — the Italian generals 
and the Korean colonel," Garven 
said. "There was a booth held by 
the Canadian snipers, which was 
very informative." 

Richardson and Garven 
attended a banquet dinner and 
afterwards, met high-ranking 
national military personnel. 

"Being able to speak to top 
officials like that as a cadet was 
a great honor," Richardson said.

personnel are) down to earth

Cherry stayed in Washington,

Not every student organiza- 
tion allowed members to throw 
fire and hurl knives at one other 
— Juggling Club encouraged it. 

The group, which met and 
performed Thursday nights at 
Union Plaza, was laid-back and 
friendly, Kevin McBeth, freshman 
in computer science, said. 

"One thing I love about it is 
that people just kind of show up," 
McBeth said. "We don't hassle 
people for showing up late or 

On a regular basis, 10 mem- 
bers showed up and were willing 
to teach less-experienced jugglers, 
McBeth said. 

Austin L. Roberts, freshman in 
mechanical engineering, saw the 
club while on campus one night 
and decided to join to get more 
practice juggling. 

"I like drawing off the more 
veteran guys' experience," Roberts 
said. "You really get to improve 

your skills." 

Kenton Born, freshman in 
computer science, learned to 
juggle when he was 9. He enter- 
tained audiences by juggling flam- 
ing torches and knives. 

"I had always loved juggling 
and had done it for quite a few 
years, so I came up here and 
thought I'd be able to put on some 
shows," Born said. "I enjoy getting 
a lot of the attention." 

Although no members had 
ever been seriously injured, jug- 
gling could be dangerous, McBeth 

"Passing machetes with 
Kenton for the first time was 
pretty interesting," he said. "He 
has this one weird trick he does 
where he throws it in the air and 
it spins backwards, but he wasn't 
very good at it yet, so most of 
them came towards my face." 

In March 2003, juggling club 
experienced a revival from its 

former state of inactivity when 
president Ryan Bradburn, junior 
in park management and conser- 
vation, decided to begin meet- 
ing regularly and become more 
involved on campus and in the 

In addition to performances at 
the Little Apple Festival and CiCo 
Park, the club gained visibility 
through the Thursday night on- 
campus meetings. 

"Being right outside the Union 
is a pretty good marketing tool 
because a lot of people see it," 
McBeth said. "Last year they were 
in a room in the Union, so no one 
ever really saw them." 

Despite Born and McBeth 's 
dangerous feats, McBeth said he 
most enjoyed helping novice jug- 
glers improve their skills. 

"The majority of the club is 
new jugglers," McBeth said. "One 
of the most fun parts is just trying 
to teach them."

At the Anthony Bates Foundation Heart Screening, 140 people saved 
$1,000 when they received free heart screenings, Oct. 27. 

The event honored Wildcat defensive tackle Anthony Bates, who 
died in 2000 from hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, an abnormality that 
causes thickness of the heart muscle. 

"(The screenings) being free definitely helps," Miranda Hayden, 
junior in management, said. "There's no excuse not to come do it." 
To offer free tests, doctors and medical technicians volunteered 
time and equipment for testing students, athletes and community mem- 
bers, Brian Niehoff, Alpha Kappa Psi adviser, said. 

Eighty-five percent of Alpha Kappa Psi members volunteered at 
the event, the organization's largest service project of the year, Jerimy 
Wooley, president and senior in management, said. 

Those who were tested first completed a two -page questionnaire. 
After waiting in line, they had their blood pressure taken and went into 
the screening room for the test. 

"From start to finish, it takes about 25 minutes," Brian Niehoff, 
adviser for Alpha Kappa Psi, said. "It's pretty painless. There is the cold 
gel, but no discomfort." 

For those who did have the test taken, it brought a sense of relief. 
"I didn't know about the disease before becoming a part of (Alpha 
Kappa Psi)," Ryan Baldassaro, senior in finance, said. "Once I did hear 
the facts and seriousness, (taking the test) gave me peace of mind." 

Others had different reasons for getting tested. Megan Beam, fresh- 
man in psychology, came to get tested because her mother told her to. 

"I feel better now that I did it," Beam said. "It was very generous for 
them to do this. It helps save lives." 

While volunteering at the event, Wooley decided to get tested 
because of a history of heart disease in his family. 

"One in 500 people have hypertrophic cardiomyopathy," Sharon 
Bates, Anthony's mother, said. "A lot (of people) don't know they have 
it. Sudden death (can occur) at 17. Anthony died at 20. 1 want people to 
understand (the death factor)." 

The disease was a silent killer, Wooley said. 
"People seem completely normal, and then they drop down," 
Wooley said, "Like any other disease, it's important to find out so you 
can get treated and live a normal life."

"We've gone through 24 12-packs," said Lauren Cox, assistant spe-

really surprised this is free. They'll be like, 'Can I take two?' And I'll be 
like, 'y e ah!'" 

In addition to the giveaways, students lined up for free massages 
from Body First. 

"I've been really tense lately, so I figured I'd come here to relax," 
Paul Davis, freshman in business administration, said. "I was looking 
forward to this more than the long (Labor Day) weekend." 

Davis said he appreciated the opportunity to familiarize himself 
with campus organizations. 

"I'm kind of one of those people who doesn't have a life," Davis said. 
"I can do anything and everything whenever I want, so I decided to join 
the Water Ski Club." 

One of the evening's biggest crowd attractions was Rayburn's musi-

"They've been singing (along) and everything," Thomas said. "There 
are a lot of parodies, and he's really good at making stuff up." 

Thomas said Rayburn's performance made the evening more enjoy- 
able for him. 

"I was just in the library studying and thought I'd swing in," 
Thomas said. "I've been standing here ever since. I'd have left a long 
time ago if not for him." 

Ernst, who organized the event, said she liked watching her work pay 
off and seeing students enjoy themselves. 

"I just liked walking around and seeing everyone," Ernst said. "I 
liked seeing all the different tattoos the students got. Some girls were 
putting them on their feet." 

However, Ernst said she was too busy to participate. 

"I kind of wanted a tattoo," she said, "but that's okay."

Two student organizations pooled resources to inform students and 
faculty about human rights issues in South America. 

K- State's Amnesty International and the Paraguayan Student Asso- 
ciation collaborated to bring Paraguayan delegates on a tour of eastern 
Kansas college campuses to commemorate the Paraguayan Year of 
Remembrance. The tour included Pittsburg State University, the Univer- 
sity of Kansas, Washburn University and K- State. 

On Sept. 26, Rosa Palau Aguilar, head of the Statistics Division of 
the Paraguayan Supreme Court, and Luis Maria Benitez Reira, second 
court circuit judge, spoke about the Paraguayan Archive of Terror. 

The archive contained documentation of people who suffered human 
rights violations during former dictator Alfredo Stroessner's control. 

"The some 700,000 documents housed in the "Archives of Terror" 
tell of the vile repression, torture and disappearance of Paraguayan citi- 
zens," said Kimberly Austin, graduate student in genetics and Amnesty 
International president. "I think it is this loyalty and patriotism Par- 
aguayan students feel for their home country which brought their 
involvement into this project." 

The K- State chapter of Amnesty International sponsored the tour 
with a grant from the Amnesty International Special Initiatives Fund 
and additional funding from the K- State Office of Diversity and Dual 
Careers and Kansas Paraguay Partners. 

"AI K- State was the lead organization," said Donna Schenck- 
Hamlin, library instructor and event coordinator. "We also had the 
largest public turnout at nearly 200 in the Little Theatre. Turnout at the 
other institutions was much smaller and more dominated by faculty. 
This is due to the efforts of student groups here, which was not so much 
the case in the other schools." 

PSA hosted delegates, publicized and provided translation services. 
"From the very beginning, everyone within PSA was so great," 
Austin said. "There were so many PSA members who volunteered their 
precious time to sit for hours in the Union to voice the importance of 
remembrance. Everyone within PSA had such respect for each other that 
it was infectious and exciting." 

The two groups planned to co- sponsor other projects to develop a 
relationship between Kansas and Paraguay. 

"I really appreciate Amnesty International's way of understanding 
the problems of other countries and trying to make a difference," said 
Mauro Gonzales, PSA president and junior in business administration. 
"It makes me feel good to know that there are people out there who are 
willing to help others." 

Kimberly Austin, president 
of Amnesty International, 
and Mauro Gonzales, 
president of the Para- 
guayan Student Associa- 
tion, joined forces to host 
delegates from Paraguay. 
"The kindness of everyone 
within PSA was wonderful," 
Austin said. "They hosted 
a cookout, with a lot of 
delicious food, at the end of 
a busy week and everyone 
had so much fun. Their 
hospitality was inspiring."

Taking bribes provides 

BSU Christian Challenge with 

funding for special interests 

Sliding on the floor like 
snakes, wrestling at mid- court 
and playing Red Rover were a few 
of the feats teams in the Baptist 
Student Union Christian Chal- 
lenge bribe -ball basketball game 

BSU Christian Challenge 
hosted the third -annual bribe - 
ball game at New Hope Commu- 
nity Church, Nov. 16. 

In bribe -ball audience mem- 
bers could bribe referees to make 
players perform unusual acts 
while playing basketball. 

In previous years, proceeds were 
used to send missionaries overseas, 
but in 2003, donations went to buy 
a trailer to transport sound equip- 
ment to and from Forum Hall for 

Men's Crew 

Thursday night meetings. 

"I'm really excited that we 
got to raise money for something 
other than a trip overseas," Mendy 
Hutson, Christian Challenge staff 
member, said. "It's fun because 
students don't get to see the effects 
of sending someone overseas. 
Now, the money is used for some- 
thing useful for them." 

Fans received an envelope, 
upon arival, containing a bribe 
menu and three bribe tickets. 

The menu showed prices for 
each bribe and included an addi- 
tional column for personal bribes. 
Bribes ranged between $5 and $25. 

Through bribes, BSU Chris- 
tian Challenge raised $1,534. 

"Bribe -ball is a good event to 

hold," Heather Contrera, event 
planner and Christian Chal- 
lenge staff member, said. "It's an 
easy, fun way to make money for 
important things." 

Team members were asked to 
perform several different bribes, 
including free throws, three -point 
shots, singing and crawling. Play- 
ers were not the only ones forced 
to do bribes. Fans were pulled 
onto the court to break- dance, 
cheerlead and sing the theme song 
to "The Fresh Prince of Bel- Air." 

"Bribe-ball was a lot of fun," 
Lauren Marshall, freshman in art, 
said. "There was a good turn-out 
and a lot of people are a part of 
Christian Challenge and New 
Hope Church."

Vegetable korma, boondi raita, chicken tikka masala and samosa 
were among the menu items at "Sanskriti: An Indian Culture Show." 

Sponsored by the India Student Association, Sanskriti featured an 
Indian cultural exposition and traditional Indian meal. 

Kallidaikurichi Sankararaman, ISA president and graduate student 
in industrial engineering, said 470 people attended the event, based on 
meal ticket sales. He said Sanskriti has improved every year. 

"I've been here for the last two Sanskritis," Sankararaman said. 
"This year, there was a lot of diversity in the programs. Before, there was 
a lot of dancing, but this year there was a good mix of things with the 
fashion show." 

ISA members also performed skits depicting ancient Indian fables 
and sang traditional songs. 

Overall, Sankararaman said the event went well — especially the 
customary meal catered by Globe Indian Cuisine from Topeka. 

"Almost everyone liked the food," Sankararaman said. "The food 
was the highlight of the whole thing." 

In addition to Indian artifacts, paintings, clothing and musical 
instruments displayed each year, ISA added a fashion show featuring 
various Indian clothing styles. 

Shilpa Vaze, graduate student in electrical engineering, said San- 
skriti served two purposes — a fund-raiser for ISA and a learning tool 
for non-Indians. 

"I think events like this are great for anyone who doesn't know much 
about the Indian culture," Vaze said. 

ISA members were encouraged to invite professors, classmates, co- 
workers and friends to attend and learn about Indian culture. 

A number of American students, faculty and ISA members attended, 
which Sankararaman said he hoped would continue. 

"I hope the trend is growing, so hopefully next year we'll have even 
more American people come," he said. 

A friend invited Matthew Pauley, junior in journalism and mass 
communications, to attend. Although many programs were not in Eng- 
lish, Pauley said he still found the performances entertaining. 

"It was a cool day where I got to see some things that I don't nor- 
mally get to see, like dances and songs that portrayed the Indian cul- 
ture," he said. "It was eye -opening."

The dull roar of conversation rapidly rose to a shouting, stomping 
and shrieking cacophony of energetic noise as the hosts of Midnite Mad- 
ness stormed the small stage of the packed Purple Masque Theatre. 

Once a month, students crowded the room for a night of fast, in- 
your-face, student- written theater. 

Hosts Tara Bauer, senior in theater, and George Stavropoulos, junior 
in theater, pumped -up the crowd and started the night with a skit. 

"It's kind of like the rush you get from going onstage," Bauer said. 
"We pump ourselves up before 
going out, but once we get out 
there, it's not really hard getting 
everyone excited. We really feed 
off of the audience and it just 

Before each program began, 
student playwrights left copies of 
their work on the stage floor to be 
selected, at random, by volunteers 
from the audience to perform. All 
student scripts were submitted 

"I think that it's part of the mystique," Vi Tran, graduate student in 
speech, said. "If it weren't anonymous, it would add a competitive ele- 
ment. It's more objective, more fair this way. This way anyone can do it, 
doesn't matter who you know, who you don't know, if you have talent or 
not or if you're in the theater department or not." 

Each play consisted of one act, a handful of characters and as much 
comedy as the script could handle. 

On the Monday before each event, the hosts announced a theme for 
playwrights to use as a starting point. 

"They don't release it until the week of the show because they don't 
want people to stew on their ideas," Tran said. "They want it to be fresh, 
so it will have that panicked, last-minute quality to it." 

Although volunteers from the audience act out the short plays, the 
scripts themselves were the real stars of Midnite Madness. 

"The best part is how spontaneous the scripts are," Anthony 
Heiman, junior in apparel marketing and design, said. "You don't know 
what it's going to be like until you get up there and start reading."

In the spirit of the best and 
worst reality television, the Union 
Program Council organized K- 
State Idol, K- State's first talent 
show in more than 20 years. 

The show's two hosts, Ryan 
Cloyd, junior in psychology, and 
Matthew Hunt, senior in agri- 
cultural economics, introduced 
contestants and drew raffle tickets 
for audience door prizes. Those 
who donated canned food or 
money before the show, Nov. 11, 
were entered in the raffle. 

"During the show, we did a 
game where we listed all of the 
sponsors except for two," Cloyd 
said, "and audience members who 
could spot which two we didn't 
mention got prizes." 

Hosts found ways to work 
sponsors' names into introduc- 
tions of each act. 

"We asked each of the con- 
testants questions beforehand 

and used some of their answers 
to introduce them and mention a 
sponsor or two," Cloyd said. "For 
instance, we asked one girl what 
her favorite TV show was, and she 
said, 'Seinfeld.' We said we liked 
that show, too and that they were 
always in a coffee shop and that 
the closest thing we had to that 
here was Java, which was one of 
our sponsors." 

The competition consisted of 
three categories: vocal, variety and 
vocal with accompaniment. Each 
awarded first and second place 
prizes. Eleven candidates vied for 
the $50 first-place prize. Second 
place winners received $35 gift 
certificates to area businesses. 
Trista Stone, junior in fine 
arts, was voted overall winner. 

"The overall winner is given 
the title of K- State's Idol — very 
prestigious," Lauren Cox, UPC 
special events assistant chair, said.

"I thought it was

Rebecca Nichols, 
freshman in pre- 
health, said. "It had a 
lot of really good talent. I thought 
the whole thing went really well." 

Since it was the first time UPC 
organized this type of event, the 
planning and production staff did 
not know exactly what to expect. 
"We were very pleased by the 
feedback we got from the audi- 
ence," Cox, sophomore in mass 
communications, said. "We really 
didn't know what kind of crowd 
we were going to get or how people 
would like it. The feedback we 
got was very positive, so we are 
definitely planning to bring it back 
again next year."

engineers enjoy evening of 

by Kerry Hillard 

A megawatt spotlight illuminated the entryway where valet-parking 
attendants greeted couples wearing evening gowns and tuxedos. 

This was not the scene of a Hollywood gala, but rather the annual 
Engineering Ball at the K- State Alumni Center, Nov. 8. 

"It was a lot more glitzy this year," Erin E. Green, senior in chemical 
engineering, said. "A lot more presentation went into it, and that made it 
a lot more fun." 

The glamorous atmosphere was not the only change awaiting the 
more than 100 students who attended. This year, the ball combined 
with the Seaton Society Dinner, a banquet and awards presentation for 
engineering alumni. 

Interacting with alumni was a welcome addition, Green said. 
"It was beneficial getting to know famous engineers who've gone to 
K- State and seeing what they've done with their careers," she said. "I 
think some people even made job prospects from it." 

Kristine Sheedy, Engineering Ball director, said that was the 
response she hoped students would have. 

"People hadn't been getting so excited about the ball," Sheedy, senior 
in industrial engineering, said. "So, to spice things up and get people 
more involved, we decided to bring them together into one, big event. 
Students were getting dressed up, so we figured they were going to go 
out to eat anyway, and the alumni enjoy interacting with students." 

Erinn Morray, senior in industrial engineering, said she agreed the 
dinner- dance combo improved on past Engineering Balls. 

"There was more mingling going on," Morray said. "Before, it just 
seemed like the students kind of lined the wall." 

The Vaughn Bolton Orchestra provided live music while couples 
swirled and twirled to everything from polka to jazz. 

A ballroom dancing novice, Morray said she opted to stay off the 
dance floor, but did take full advantage of the dessert table. 

"The highlight was the chocolate fountain," Morray said. "I was 
impressed by it." 

David Edward Thompson, senior in electrical engineering, was 
equally impressed. 

"It was a multi-tiered fountain, and, rather than water, it was 
flowing with chocolate," Thompson said. "They had strawberries and 
bananas to dip in the chocolate." 

Thompson said the main draw of the evening was having the chance 
to do something special with his wife, Amity, senior in history. 

"I went because I wanted to get dressed up and go to dinner with my 
wife," he said.

Queer- Straight Alliance 

members form strong bonds 

during social activities 

Twelve students, divided into teams of three, competed in a scaven- 
ger hunt, Nov. 16, as members of the Queer- Straight Alliance searched 
for 10 items at homes of four allies. 

"The purpose was to get to know some allies they normally wouldn't 
see at the meeting and to interact with people in a different setting than 
the Union meeting- room," Heath Harding, QSA ally, said. "We get to 
see people as multidimensional folks." 

Most items on the list commonly appeared in households: a tooth- 
pick, a twist- tie or a can of corn. Other items, like a 9V battery or blank 
videocassette, were harder to find. Two items, however, were specific to 
the organization. 

"There were a lot of random items that were obscure, but would be 
in a house," QSA President Leigh Fine, junior in chemistry, said. "Then 
there were items that were deliberate, like something rainbow- colored 
and a gay-lesbian-bisexual-transgender-themed magazine." 

Groups had two hours to collect items and return to Union Station. 

"We didn't find a blank videocassette, but everything else was easy," 
Maggie Sebelius, senior in mass communication, said. 

QSA regularly met twice a month — once for business matters and 
once as a social event. The organization strived to create a safe, inclusive 

environment for members.

— QSA knocked down a lot of doors by meeting queer people and 
queer- friendly people." 

Fine said the organization had been building and growing. 
"We had a problem with attendance and getting people to partici- 
pate," Fine said. "That was something this officer group has worked on, 
to create a community atmosphere that's safe and a fun place." 

QSA spoke to groups about their experiences in the gay community. 
"A group of four or five of us go in front of a class or group and tell 
our coming out stories and have the audience ask questions," Maggie 
Sebelius said. "It helps a lot because a lot of people have a preconceived 
notion about us. It helps people realize there are gay people on the K- 
State campus." 

Faculty, staff and students could request signs and bookmarks 
that had a picture of Willie the Wildcat superimposed over an 
inverted pink triangle. Those who displayed the signs and book- 
marks pledged to be understanding, supportive and trustworthy 
if a queer student or colleague needed help, advice or someone 
to talk to. Project supporters avoided heterosexist assumptions, 
confronted homophobia, used inclusive language and believed 
K-State was enriched by diversity.

The backyard of the Beach 

Museum plays host to fund-raising 

barbecue to support art 

As the sun kissed the western 
horizon on a Friday evening and 
shadows danced between the 
limestone buildings, community 
members dressed in jeans, leather 
vests and cowboy boots congre- 
gated beneath autumn foliage. 

In the backyard of the Mari- 
ana Kistler Beach Museum of 
Art, a silent auction, live music 
and poetry reading entertained 
patrons of the museum, Sept. 5. 

"Party on the Prairie: Barbe- 
cue at the Beach" united museum 
donors and provided Student 
Friends of the Beach Museum a 
chance to support their parent 

Dinner tickets for the event 
sold for $50. Student Friends 

hosted guests, served drinks, 
cleared tables and manned tables 
for the silent auction. 

Student Friends president and 
senior in geology Marie Konarik 
said members did not have the 
resources to donate money to the 
museum, but they donated time 
to projects aimed to purchase and 
maintain artwork. 

"We help get the museum's 
name out to the public," Andrew 
Kowal, junior in management, 
said. "It's fun to do and you sup- 
port the museum." 

Kowal said the reason he 
enjoyed the organization was the 
friendships he made with other 
student members and Friends of 
the Beach Museum members.

"I like art, but that's not the 
reason I'm in the club," said Jenni- 
fer Curoe, junior in family studies 
and human services. "I know the 
people involved and enjoy the 
activities we do." 

Aside from supporting 
Friends, Student Friends orga- 
nized educational workshops for 
community children and looked 
for ways to attract more K- State 
students to museum exhibits. 

"We try to hold events to 
entice the students of K- State to 
attend," Konarik said. "We are still 
a pretty new organization, so we 
are still trying to figure out what 
the students like and what will 
make them come to the museum

small turnout does not dampen 

by Erika Sauerwein 

There may not have been a repeat of last year's full- court showdown 
in Political Science Club's faculty versus student basketball game, but 
the club made the most of the situation. 

Compared to last year's five -against- five game, only three students 
and two faculty members came to play in the second annual game at the 
Chester E. Peters Recreational Center, Nov. 16. 

"It wasn't quite the same turnout," Christine Baker, president and 
senior in political science, said. "We were a little disappointed. We 
should have probably publicized the game more." 

Despite the small turnout, John Fliter, adviser and associate pro- 
fessor of political science, and William Richter, professor of political 
science, faced- off against Baker and political science students Scott 
Minneman, senior, and Laura Wood, sophomore. The faculty lost 11-7. 

"We were a little outnumbered and a little slower," Fliter said. "Our 
wisdom couldn't compete with the youthful energy on the court." 

Baker said the basketball game was a chance for students and faculty 
to socialize. 

"It is just to have fun in an out- of- classroom setting," she said. "It 
is an opportunity to get to know the faculty and maybe take out a little 
aggression on them on the basketball court. We had a great time." 

Since the game did not last long, Minneman and Richter played 
a game of one-on-one. Richter lost 11-7 after Minneman hit several 
outside jump shots. 

"Mr. Richter was a lot better than I thought," Minneman said. "He 
surprised me a little. It was a good time, and I didn't mind winning." 

Richter, who occasionally played basketball with Kansas State 
faculty members at Ahearn Field House over the lunch hour, said he 
expected to lose the match 11-0. 

"I was glad I was able to score some points," he said. "The basketball 
game gives me a chance to meet students that I wouldn't otherwise get 
to know in the classroom." 

Political science professor 
William Richter, goes up 
for a rebound under the 
watchful eye of one of his 
opponents, Laura Wood, 
sophomore in political 
science. "The student team 
won, but it was close," 
Christine Baker, president 
and senior in political sci- 
ence, said, "and the faculty 
team managed to hold their 
own, much to the student 
team's surprise." Photo by

Brooks Larson, Salina 
resident, hooks up his 
equipment before begin- 
ning the night of gaming. 
LAN attendees heard 
from Jonathan Williams, a 
professional gamer known 
as "Fatality," who spoke 
about his experiences 
playing computer games 
professionally. He started 
the evening by telling every- 
one, "thanks for having me 
out here. I'm going to have 
a pretty good time killing 
you." Photo by Drew Rose 

Pulsing techno music, the 
warm glow of more than 100 com- 
puters and students with nametags 
reading "Metal" and "Tweak" 
contributed to the ambiance of 
the K- State Gamers Board's LAN 
party at K- State - 
Salina, Aug. 29. 

After listening 
to keynote speaker 
Jonathan Williams, a 
professional com- 
puter gamer known 
as "Fatality," attend- 
ees settled in for a 
night of computer 
games, such as "CounterStrike" 
and "Command and Conquer 
Generals," that lasted until 6 a.m. 

"I came to play Fatality and 
get my ass kicked," Nicholas 
Hintz, freshman in professional 
pilot, said. "I'll play whatever 
game he's playing." 

Before the LAN party started, 
Williams, introduced as the 


No. 1 professional gamer in the 
world, spoke about his experiences 
playing video games and described 
overseas tournaments he partici- 
pated in. 

"It was just like the Olympics," 
Williams said about a tourna- 
ment in South Korea. "They had 
the national anthem playing in 
the background. It was like I was a 
rock star." 

"Tweak," aka Kevin Gorman, 
club treasurer and senior in com- 
puter science technology, and other 
KGB members staffed the event. 
In addition to random giveaways, 
KGB provided pizza, soda and 
half-hour game updates. 

KGB's first activity of the year, 
the LAN party was the biggest 
event since the club's inception in 
spring 2002. 

"We started really small in 
the residence halls with five or six 
computers," Gorman said. "Now 
it's nuts." 

Lindsey Wilcox, senior in 
computer science, said LAN par- 
ties had the potential to get wild. 

"There's one guy here who 
screams like a girl," Wilcox said. 
"There's trash talking — it's kind 
of expected." 

Wilcox experienced the LAN 
party from a unique perspec- 
tive — she was one of only three 
women present. 

"It's a little bit intimidating, 
but it lets me make a statement," 
Wilcox said. "Last year, I came 
in here, and I made some of 
them regret they ever picked on a 
woman. It's like a peaceful con- 
frontation, even though you're 
killing people." 

After less than a year, KGB 
boasted the largest club mem- 
bership on the K-State-Salina 
campus, Gorman said. 

"It's good to see a club flour- 
ishing like this," Wilcox said. "We 
put Salina on the map."

politicians versus journalists 

by Matt Gorney 

With a 28-0 lead over the Student Governing Association team, and only 
30 minutes to play, the Collegian team looked for a shutout football game. 

During the game at Memorial Stadium, David Skretta, Collegian sports 
editor and junior in mass communications, said it looked like a blow out. 

"It's probably going to be a lot like Texas A&M and Oklahoma by the 
end," Skretta said, referring to the 77-0 Oklahoma victory. "We'll prob- 
ably start downing it at the end." 

However, the Collegian versus SGA football game was not over. 
Although SGA found the end zone — setting off a scoring frenzy 
with three SGA touchdowns and two Collegian touchdowns in 19 min- 
utes _ the Collegian maintained the lead and won, 42-21. 

Skretta said the football game was an obvious choice because of the 
university and time of year. 

"It's K- State, and it's a football school," he said. "Plus, it's perfect 
weather. It's a natural thing, I guess." 

Not the first football game between the two organizations, the two have 
not faced off in more than four years. The prize, an engraved, traveling 
trophy, dated back to the previous time the two teams played each other. 

Student Body President John O'Hara said when SGA was challenged, 
he had to accept. 

After the loss, O'Hara, senior in finance, said SGA played hard but 
he was still disappointed. 

"They played better than us and they deserved to win," he said. 
"Hopefully we'll get a chance to practice before we play next year." 

Amy Preston, Collegian senior staff writer, said she played because 
she wanted to show her Collegian pride, but her favorite moment came 
at the expense of a Collegian columnist, who was also a student senator 
and played on the SGA team. 

"(I played) because I'm the tomboy of the newsroom and I love 
to play," Preston said. "I think the best part was me depantsing Zach 
Hauser, (freshman in business administration), only to find he didn't 
have anything on underneath." 

Even though the game was non- tackle, players occasionally hit the 
turf after attempting to catch passes or stop runners. 

"I was diving for a tackle on the Collegian offender and I took a bite 
out of the turf," Layton Ehmke, senior in mass communication, said. 
"(The best part) was learning how to bleed and take it like a man. It feels 
good to bleed, man. It feels real good to bleed." 

Ehmke said he was surprised SGA did not play better. 
"Being SGA and highly organized as we are, it didn't show tonight," he 
said. "Dancing around like three -fingered sloths — that's what we looked like."

IIPE members promote importance of 

Loni Marietta said she thought 
the world was in trouble. 

Marietta, senior in market- 
ing and president of Honesty and 
Integrity Peer Educators, said 
she felt the ethical standards of 
modern society had sunk to an 
all-time low. 

"Ethics are a very important 
part of our culture," Marietta 
said. "As students, we're going 
to start demanding more ethical 
standards from professors and the 
world. I think we're headed back 

As president of HIPE, Marietta 
helped orchestrate Integrity Week, 
April 14-18. 

"Loni characterizes the kind of 
student leadership that drives this 
program," Provost James Coff- 
man, said. "It's first and foremost 
a student- driven system." 

The third year for Integrity 
Week, members of HIPE teamed 
with the Student Governing 
Association's judicial branch to 


expand the event's festivities and 
reach a wider audience. 

"I think (working with SGA) 
was a very integral part of this 
year's event," Marietta said. "We 
were talking about integrity, not 
only for students in the classroom, 
but in life." 

In addition to involving 
another campus organization in 
Integrity Week, HIPE members 
invited Mike Adams, former Piper 
High School principal, to address 
students April 14. 

Adams, who resigned as prin- 
cipal of Piper after a highly-pub- 
licized plagiarism scandal, spoke 
of the importance of integrity in 
classrooms. He pointed to the 
poor example set by the adult 
world as one of the main causes of 
academic dishonesty. 

"Students see parents cheating 
and receive a slap on the wrist," 
Adams said. "We do set very poor 
examples. I think kids today are 
looking to adults in society for 

by Jaci Boydston 

a moral compass. They don't 
see why they should be held to a 
higher standard." 

Adams described a phenom- 
enon he referred to as "grade 
inflation," where the number of As 
increased, but scores on stan- 
dardized tests decreased. He said 
students should be willing to work 
for their grades and accept the 
consequences of any bad decisions 
they make. 

Marietta said she agreed 
students needed good examples to 
help prevent cheating. 

"For some people, it's a situa- 
tion where they don't even think 
about cheating because they 
know they shouldn't," Marietta 
said. "That's great, but could you 
vocalize it? It's become so easy to 
cut and paste stuff off the Inter- 
net. Technology is great, and it 
has made our lives a lot easier, but 
at the same time, I think we still 
need to use our heads. We can't let 
computers think for us."

Food, live music and activities 
filled the night hours at the Chester 
E. Peters Recreation Complex when 
students participated in Up 'Til 
Dawn's final event, March 28, 2003. 

Throughout the year, 
Up 'Til Dawn events raised 
$135,025 for St. Jude Children's 
Research Hospital, the highest 
amount among all participating 

Sol Pettit-Scott, 2002-03 
executive director, said he felt 
blessed and was not ready for Up 
'Til Dawn to be finished for the 

"I really enjoyed my time with 
Up 'Til Dawn," Pettit-Scott, senior 
in chemical engineering, said. "I 
see this as a one-year success right 
now. We've already raised the bar 

During the evening, attendees 
saw Classy Cats perform and heard 
speeches from a St. Jude patient's 
family and Dean of Student Life 
Pat Bosco, who said he had never 
seen anything like Up 'Til Dawn. 

About 700 students divided 
into teams to participate in Up 'Til 

Students party late into the night 
to celebrate raising money 
for St. Jude's Hospital 

Dawn events. Each team's goal was 
to raise $750. Out of 100 teams, 59 
raised more than $1,000. 

"I loved (the event)," Caitlin 
Faddis, junior in journalism and 
mass communications, said. "I 
went because I knew how much 
effort my team put in." 

Faddis said the philanthropy 
was important because students 
had opportunities to live lives 
patients may not have had. She 
also said everyone should want to 

"The best part was probably 
the very end when they made the 
announcement of how much we 
raised and gave the check to one 
of the families," she said. "It's great 
that we did it for St. Jude's, and I 
can't wait for next year." 

To build group unity, people 
learned a morale dance at each Up 
'Til Dawn event. The dance was 
different at each location and was 
choreographed before the event. 

"I think that the morale dance 
was really fun, and I found myself 
laughing the whole time," said 
Kathryn Van Keuren, junior in 

secondary education. 

"Everyone took to it — it was 
really worth it." 

Van Keuren, executive director, 
said she wanted to reach out to 
all corners of the university and 
use the philanthropy to bring the 
campus together. 

Instead of communicating 
with the board directly, each team 
had a morale captain who acted 
as a liaison between the team and 
those in charge of the program. 
The job involved communication 
and maintaining team spirit, said 
Heather O'Connor, sophomore in 
fine arts and morale captain. 

O'Connor said Up 'Til Dawn 
was positive for K-State. 

"There are not words to 
describe it — it's amazing," she 
said. "I'm so glad we started doing 
it at K-State. It adds a lot to our 

Pettit-Scott said Up 'Til Dawn 
had an impact on life at K-State.

Students tear up the dance floor 

in Union Station to celebrate 

Hispanic Heritage Month 

Salsa covered not only tortilla chips, but also the dance floor at 
Hispanic American Leadership Organization's Gran Baile dance, Oct. 17. 

HALO offered an opportunity for students to experience salsa 
dancing and other Latin dance styles in Union Station. It was the final 
activity of Hispanic Heritage Month, Sept. 15 to Oct. 15. Tickets to the 
event cost $2.50 for singles and $4 for couples. 

"I danced a hole in my toe," Austin McCabe, senior in elementary 
education, said. "I had the wrong shoes and danced through a blister 
— that's the price you pay, though." 

McCabe, who had previous salsa dancing experience, was among the 
first to arrive and showed inexperienced dancers some moves. 

"I just share with them what I know — then they are involved," 
McCabe said. "I had a feeling of accomplishment, and I have more people 
to dance with." 

Yvonne Adame, sophomore in mass communication, said she 
attended because she was a HALO member. 

"It was awesome," Adame said. "We had a great turnout." 

At one point, the style of music changed from a Latin beat to rap, 
which prompted some to leave the dance floor and others to come off the

"(The change) was pretty neat," Adame said. "It gave a break to people 
who didn't know how to salsa but still wanted to get their groove on." 

The style of music eventually changed back to Latin and the salsa 
dancing resumed. 

Approximately 160 students attended, Naureen Kazi, junior in 
journalism and mass communications, said. 

Kazi, president of HALO, said the dance offered students an 
opportunity to do something different on a Friday night. 

"Latin pop culture has become more visible," Kazi said. "(The dance) 
was something new to do that they don't see every week." 

McCabe said she was glad to have the opportunity to teach other 
people and was happy not to be the only person out on the dance floor. 

She also said she was fond of salsa dancing and enjoyed doing it 
whenever an opportunity arose. 

"Every so often, someone comes up with a reason for us to do Latin 
on campus," McCabe said. "I really like it." 

She said she would be better prepared the next time she salsas. 

"I'd get better shoes," she said. 



The Hispanic American Leader- 
ship Organization of K-State was 
awarded the Outstanding Student 
Organization Award from the U.S. 
Hispanic Leadership Institute for the 
first time in 14 years. 

The award was presented to 
HALO, Sept. 26, at the 21st Annual 
USHLI Conference in Chicago. 

HALO president Naureen Kazi 
said the award indicated how well the 
club was thriving on campus. 

"It showed how well the organi- 
zation was doing as a whole," Kazi, 
junior in journalism and mass commu- 
nications, said. "It's a new foundation 

by Matt Gorney 

that has been set and means higher 
goals for HALO." 

According to its Web site, one of 
HALO's objectives was to "develop 
leadership skills and encourage aca- 
demic excellence." 

Yvonne Adame, sophomore in 
mass communication, said she joined 
HALO to meet Hispanics at K-State. 

"I found them - they didn't find me," 
Adame said. "The people are awesome. 
I like the message they send out." 

Kazi said the group tried to pro- 
mote a family atmosphere. 

"We have 35 active members," 
she said. "We all are very close."

Allies train to create 

A program with a 20 -year history started to become a more recog- 
nized name on campus. 

SafeZone was a program to provide safe zones where members of 
the campus community could show support for individuals affected by 
verbal or physical violence. 

SafeZone Allies were trained through the Campaign for Non-Vio- 
lence and the Women's Center. Students and faculty who attended an 
hour- long introductory session became allies. 

"The goal is to work at non-violence from a different perspective," 
Dorinda Lambert, associate director of counseling services, said. "Yes, you 
want to help the victim, but we're creating a visible environment to help 
with the skills from all of us. You're not expected to become a therapist." 

Thirty students and faculty completed beginner training, March 3. 
The group listened to speakers talk about hate, community, victims of 
sexual assault, the importance of helping, and the gay, lesbian, bisexual 
and trans-gendered perspective. 

Lambert said part of being an ally was being open to talk to people. 

"The ally role is to have the knowledge to listen, be supportive and 
direct them to the appropriate resources," she said. "We're all trained to 
be nice, but we think it's our responsibility to take care of everything. 
You're not a therapist, but there are things you can do to help them get 

After participants of the March 3 workshop completed the training, 
there were 160 allies at K- State. Mary Todd, assistant director of the

Women's Center, said she hoped the default environment soon would be 
a safe zone. 

"It promotes non-violence," Pheasant Weber, sophomore in open- 
option and SafeZone ally, said. "If you have a problem, you have a safe 
place to go." 

Lambert said the most important aspect of SafeZone was giving 
people hope. 

"There are answers to be found," she said. "They have support 
through a good network of allies. Let them know you are taking out 
your heart and offering to help." 

Besides helping, another part of the SafeZone program was referral. 
Through the SafeZone network, an ally needed to know where to refer 
someone if they could not directly help them. 

Weber said since her participation in the program, no one came to 
her to speak in a safe zone, but she displays the SafeZone sticker on her 
residence hall room door and wore a non -violent pin on her backpack. 

"I hope that if a resident in the dorms had a problem they would 
come to me and I could help them out," she said. "I have the resources 
to help them." 

The SafeZone training ended with Scott Jones, assistant dean of 
student life, speaking about community. 

"We have to make a commitment to live life undivided," he said. 
"We also need to challenge others to be authentic. The principles of 
community go beyond a list of do nots. They are aspirational values."

Celebrating 50 years 

singers spend hours practicing, 

performing, making friendships 

Despite the huge time commitment involved, several K- State Singers 
agreed they had one of the greatest jobs in the world. 

Never mind they were not getting paid. 

Darin Richardson, junior in business administration, said not get- 
ting paid was one of the things that made K- State Singers special. 

"The reason we do that is so that we can keep a separate entity from 
the college," Richardson said. "We can go around and say, 'We're here 
because we love K- State and we love performing, and that's why we're 

K- State Singers, which celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2004, was a 
small ensemble that performed at university events and various venues 
throughout the state, some of which required hours of traveling. 

The group performed between 15 and 20 times a year and spent 10 
hours a week practicing, Richardson said. 

"You just have to plan your life around it," Christy Bebermeyer, 
senior in elementary education, said. "It is a lot of work, so there's a lot 
of class time I miss. All the professors work really well with us — you 
just have to have good time management." 

The group practiced Mondays through Thursdays from 3:30 to 
5:30 p.m., because, in the past, no classes were scheduled after 3:30 p.m., 
Richardson said. 

Laura Buessing, junior in nutrition and exercise science, said 
although the workload could become difficult, the benefits of being a 
Singer made it worthwhile. 

"I kind of run out of time," Buessing said. "Not only did I decide 
to take human body (an eight credit-hour class) this semester, I also 
decided to get a job. It's been a lot of time, but it's something you get 

addicted to."

Laura Buessing said Singers was more of a treat than a responsibility. 

"For me, and for many other people in the group, it's not an obliga- 
tion," Buessing said. "This is our recess of the day. After being in class 
for how many hours, we get to come to practice and stand and sing and 
goof off. I say K- State Singers keeps me sane." 

Singers spent time together outside of rehearsals and performances 
as well. 

"We go to parties together," Darin Richardson said. "We even had 
our own Thanksgiving supper. We're really close friends." 

Part of the group's therapeutic effects could be contributed to the 
close-knit bonds between group members, Christy Bebermeyer said. 

"Personally, it's like going to class with all your best friends," she 
said. "I have some very close friends in Singers. Music makes me happy, 
and I'm imagining that everyone else feels the same way."

K-State Singers have been on seven United 
Service Organization Defense Department Tours, 
each time missing up to two months of classes. 

One alum, 1994 graduate Mark Schultz, went 
on to a professional singing career in Country 
and Christian music. 

K-State Singers performed at three World's Fairs. 

Approximately 30 Singers couples have gotten 
married, Gerald Polich, director, said. "They're 
together a lot," he said. "Some of these people 
were in the group three and four years together, 
and they get married."

Whether an athlete played on a varsity, club or intramural team, sports united stu- 
dents of all ages, all majors and all ethnicities toward one common purpose — to win. 

Club teams struggled to generate funding and fan support for their programs, 
but athletes maintained a positive outlook and love of the game. 

For the varsity sports, it was a year of new heights. The tennis team competed 
further into the NCAA tournament than anytime in the history of the program. The 
volleyball team won its first 30 -win season and claimed its first Big 12 Conference 
title. And after losing three straight games, two to conference opponents, the football 
team turned around and won six to qualify for and win the Big 12 Championship. 

Intramural sports offered students camaraderie in still competitive but less 
demanding games and tournaments. 

Dedicated fans influenced sports through continual support and outstanding spirit. 

Whether varsity or club, athlete or fan, sports allowed all involved to experience 
the thrill of victory and the anguish of defeat together.

Loss of starters, 
pitchers creates 
depth problem 

by Andi Rice 

Limited by injuries and seven 
returning starters, the Wildcats 
lacked a competitive edge. 

"It was just too much," Coach 
Mike Clark said. "We didn't have 
enough depth to overcome all 
those injuries. You don't make 
excuses, because everybody has 
injuries, but in my 17 years, we've 
never had injuries like this." 

After losing nine pitchers, 

including two of the top starters 
from the 2002 squad, the team 
faced battles from the bullpen as 
they had the league's worst ERA 
at 8.28. 

"I thought we'd be com- 
petitive," Clark said. "I knew the 
pitching part was the thing we 
were the most concerned about 
and that's the thing that came up 
and bit us. Jim Ripley had some 

real strong points and some good 
games, but other than Jim, none of 
the other pitchers stepped up."

school history. 

"Things weren't going well for 

us," Pat Maloney said. "We'd hit 

well one game and wouldn't play 

defense and wouldn't pitch well. 

Nothing ever really clicked at one 


The Cats did not pull out of 

the slump until they took two of 
a three -game series against Texas 

"Winning the series was good 
because we were healthier pitching 
wise and had Brett Bagley back," 
Coach Mike Clark said, "but by 
that time we had Ty (Soto) and 
Gabe (Luttrell) out. By the time 
we were getting healthier on the 
pitching side we were beat up on 
the position-player side." 

Despite breaking the 16 -game 
losing streak, the Cats fell into 

another slide, dropping 10 games 
before taking one from Okla- 

Senior first baseman Tim Doty 
said the losing streak was just part 
of the game all the Wildcats had 
committed themselves to. 

"I had no idea this was going 
to happen," he said. "Coming into 
the season we had a lot of guys 
back and we figured we'd be able 
to play really well, but this is base- 
ball and this is what happens." 

In the midst of adversity, seven 
games short of a complete season, 
Clark announced his resigna- 
tion, effective when his contract 
expired at the end of the season. 
"I did everything I could and 
gave everything I could for 17 
years," Clark said. "That's just 
long enough. When you do it for 
that long and do it with that much 

passion, it is just awfully tough to 
continue to come back and con- 
tinue to come back. I look forward 
to being a Cat fan." 

The team ended the year 
winning three of their last seven 
games, a 15-37 overall record and 
a 5-22 record in conference play. 

Clark said the season was frus- 
trating because no one saw the full 
potential of the team all year. 

"We never had the team that 
was recruited on the field," he 
said. "We needed Mitch Walter, 
Terry Montoya and Brett Bagley 
(who were out due to injury). If 
we had those three, it would have 
been an entirely different ball 

Clark ended his 17-year era as 
the all-time winningest coach in 
K- State baseball history with 435 
wins and 488 losses.

The glass slipper was pulled off the foot of the "Cinderella" K- State 
tennis team last spring as they came up short against the No. 5 ranked

The Cats finished the season with a 15-8 record after losing to the 
Trojans in the 16th round of the women's 2003 NCAA Division I Team 
Tennis Tournament in Gainesville, Fla. It was K- State's first trip to the 
Round of 16. 

Though the Trojans shut out the Cats 4-0, the spring season had its 
share of program highs. 

"USC was just too good," Coach Steve Bietau said. "It's been a great 
year. I've been coaching for 25 years and I've never had a group of 
players that I've appreciated the opportunity to coach more than these

The USC match was the final match for senior Petra Sedlmajerova's 
four-year career as a Wildcat. She finished her senior season 17-14 in 
singles play and 20-12 in doubles with partner junior Paulina Castille- 

"It was a great season," Sedlmajerova said. "It was the best season I 
have had in the four years. I'm really happy I got to finish like that." 

For her accomplishments, Sedlmajerova was named to the Big 12 
All- Conference Tennis Team twice, once as a singles player and again in 

Cats also gained off- court accolades after their season was cut short 
in the Round of 16. 

Four Cats were named to the 2003 Tennis Academic All-Big 12 
team: Sedlmajerova, Castillejos and sophomores Maria Rosenberg and 
Andrea Cooper. 

To qualify for first- team honors, members had to maintain a mini- 
mum 3.2 GPA. 

It was Sedlmajerova's third trip to the first-team and Castillejo's first 
time on the team after being named to the second-team in 2002. 

Team members were not the only ones who received awards during 
2002. Assistant coach Andres Gonzalez was named Omni Hotels' ITA 
Central Region Assistant Coach of the Year. 

In his second year at K- State, Gonzalez helped the Cats to a 27- 16 
overall mark and a 13-9 Big 12 record. 

"Andres is an excellent and deserving coach for this award," Coach 
Steve Bietau said. "He has made a huge difference with the team and the 
program. It has been a pleasure to work with him the last two years and 
I'm looking forward to next season."

Boucher, Smith lead 
team in two record- 
breaking performances 

. wsw 

by Andi Rice Things came in twos for the women's golf team: two players ranked 

in the top of the Big 12 Conference and two strokes stopped the team 
from going to the NCAA National Tournament. 

With first-team, all-Big- 12 junior Christine Boucher and senior 
Miranda Smith leading the team as the No. 4 and No. 19 ranked players 
in the Big 12, Coach Kristi Knight said she had confidence for the season. 
"I was just fortunate enough that I had two players who played really 
well in Christine and Miranda," Knight said. "It's a matter of how the 
other girls step up and help out, but this year I had two of the best play- 
ers in the Big 12 on my team and that really helped out." 

The team finished their five -tournament fall schedule with two 

record-breaking performances. 
Cats captured the Sunflower 
Invitational title and placed 
second out of 17 in the Edwin 
Watt Invitational where they broke 
the record for 18 -hole team score. 
They ended the final round with a 
score of 286. 

Boucher captured the indi- 
vidual title by shooting a three - 
day total of 204 and breaking the 
school record for best round with a 
64 in the final round. 

During the NCAA Women's 

Central Regional in Lincoln, 

Neb., junior Karen Quinte- 

lier hits her second shot on 

Hole 15. The Cats shot two 

strokes over the qualifier 

for nationals. "We should 

definitely make it next 

year," Quintelier said. "We 

definitely have the potential 

to do it, and no close calls. 

We are going to prove that 

we can." Photo by 

Matt Stamey 

"I was pretty happy with the way I played," Boucher said. "I hit the 
ball closer to the greens and I putted well throughout the tournament." 

In the spring, the team placed in the top of the competition at all six 
tournaments, including a sixth-place finish at the Big 12 tournament. 

For the third time in school history, the team went to the regional 
tournament where they came up two strokes short of qualifying the 
team for nationals. 

"We had accomplished so many of our goals that it was hard to think 
that this was our last tournament," junior Karen Quintelier said. "It feels 
good that it was that close. I mean I'd rather say we were two strokes 
away instead of 200, but at the same time it makes you look back and 
say, 'if only I could save this.' But you can't have the 'what ifs' back." 

Boucher was the only Cat to qualify for nationals with a fifth-place 
finish at the regional tournament. She was the first Wildcat to qualify 
for the NCAA Championship Finals and finished the tournament with a 
311. Her performance at the finals marked the tournament's first under- 
par round with a one-under 71 on her third day of competition.

Putting forth a strong 

beginning, junior A.J. Elgert 

tees off, starting his round 

in the NCAA Men's Golf 

Central Regional at Colbert 

Hills Golf Course, May 

15. "As the year went on, 

I think that the (regional) 

tournament became more 

of a focus," Coach Tim 

Norris said, "and obviously 

we had to qualify to play 

in the regional and that's 

something Kansas State 

hasn't done in 10 years. 

I think just that (alone) 

was a pretty significant 

accomplishment." Photo by

The high and low came at the same time for the Wildcats when they 
were a stroke short at the regional tournament, Coach Tim Norris said. 

"It was a three -round tournament," he said. "Every round there 
was a shot or two that could have helped us get over the hump and not 
be quite so much on the bubble, but the guys did a great job of putting 
everything behind them and playing their hearts out on that last day." 

After three days at Colbert Hills Golf Course, the Cats finished with 
a score of 872, eight over par, and one stroke shy of the No. 10 spot that 
went to Wichita State University. 

"We knew we had to play well and we knew that we were going to 
have to shoot eight or nine under for the day, and the team actually 
came through and shot eight under," junior Aaron Watkins said. "We 
still missed it, but we can't really think of it like that. 

"We come off thinking only positive that we even made it that far 
and that we had the chance to go to nationals — taking into consider- 
ation that the conference we were in ranked us 26 or 27 and we were up 
there fighting with the top 10." 

With five consistent players, the Wildcats were in a tough field of com- 
petition, Norris said, finishing in the top half in 11 of 14 tournaments. 

"It doesn't matter if you are playing 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5, because you know 
the 5 -guy is going to shoot just as good as your 1-guy and that just gives 
you a lot of confidence," Watkins said. "That's huge because a lot of 
other teams don't have five players they can completely trust on a level to 
know that they are all going to be playing good." 

Watkins and junior A.J. Elgert were the only players with Division I 
experience on the team, Norris said. 

"All the other guys played phenomenal considering they didn't really 
have any Division I experience, like Matt Van Cleave and a couple fresh- 
men who came through," Watkins said. "Having Division I experience 
makes you a little smarter on the golf course." 

K- State ended No. 55 in the Sagarin Rankings, 14 spots higher than 2002. 
"Obviously we have to look at it as a success," junior Matt VanCleave 
said. "It kind of leaves us with that taste in our mouth and we want to 
go out and play in nationals next year and win a few tournaments. It's 
going to give us the motivation to go out and work hard in the summer 
and come out strong in the fall."

Without an exterior facility to practice on, the outdoor track team's 
season was weighed down by unexpected injuries, Coach Clif Rovelto 

"I don't like to make excuses, and I don't want to," Rovelto said, "but, 
the reality is that we had some stress fractures that we haven't had in the 
past. We basically had to train with some kids indoor all year long." 

In the fall of 2002 when R.V. Christian Track was torn out, the facil- 
ity had one usable long-jump pit, one pole-vault pit and two shot-put 
rings. The javelin throwers could only throw one direction to prevent 
interference with the high jumpers, and runners had room to warm up. 

The track was scheduled to be rebuilt for the 2003 season, but due to 
inclement weather, the project was pushed back. 

"Part of the problem was weather, part of the problem was equip- 
ment and part of the problem was just some other logistical things," 
Rovelto said. "The early fall was pretty wet. It seemed to always be wet 
when we needed it to be dry."

and the NCAA National Championship — the Wildcats just hoped for 
everyone to be healthy, Rovelto said. 

Despite injuries, he said team members who competed performed 


"With both teams at the conference meet, our finish wasn't impacted 
by someone not going out there and not performing as much as it was 
by those who weren't there or those who were coming off of injuries or 
whatever," Rovelto said. "The kids who were healthy performed well

for the 12th time in her career. 

"It was a really fast race," Mortimer said. "A lot of people are calling 
it the most competitive 1,500 they've ever had. I would have liked to

Rebekah Green finished her outdoor eligibility with a sixth-place

Although Morgan High didn't earn All-American honors, she 
placed 11th in the high jump with a mark of 5-8.75. 

With a young team of men, Coach Cliff Rovelto said the team's 
future looked bright despite having only two men at the national cham- 
pionships — freshman Kyle Lancaster and senior Josef Karas. 

"We should have had seven athletes here, but partly because we've 
been training indoor all year, and because they didn't get the outdoor 
track finished in time, it helped lead to some injuries," Karas said. "(The 
season) would have been a lot better except for some circumstances." 
Lancaster finished fourth in the high jump with a jump of 7-3.25, 
which also earned him All-American status. 

"I felt like this was one of our best men's teams ever and I still 
believe that," Rovelto said. "Even though we placed 10th at the confer- 
ence meets outdoors, it was one of the best teams we've had in terms of 
covering events and quality of depth in events and so forth. We just had, 
whatever you want to call it, bad luck or whatever. It just didn't come 
together at the end."

English and western equestrian teams place in 
regional and national championships 

after moving to new zone, by Andi Rice 

At the beginning of the season, 
questions surfaced about the 
teams' capabilities and the opposi- 
tion. By the end of the season, 
none lingered as both the English 
and western equestrian teams 
placed in national competition. 
"I had a lot of returners who 
I knew were confident," Head 
Coach Lindsay Breidenthal said. 
"As far as the new riders coming 
in, I didn't know how they would 
compete and I was hoping for the 
best. We had some highs and we 
had some very lows, and we ended 
up pulling through it." 

Switched from Region 2, 
Zone 7 to Region 2, Zone 9 by the 
American Quarter Horse Associa- 
tion to spread growth east, K- State 
dominated the competition by

"We had the potential to go 
further in our new region," Assis- 
tant Coach Meghan Cunningham 
said. "We've had a lot more wins 
and a lot more publicity. But on 
the other hand — on the negative 
side — we didn't know how good 
we were until postseason and we 
started facing tougher competi- 
tion and that's when the reality 
check has to come." 

The western team won its 
Zone 9 Championship by 31 
points and the English team won 
by 48 points, which marked the 
first time either team won Zone 9. 

"That was the first time we 
went in knowing nothing about 
the horses and nothing about the 
competition," Cunningham said.

Fox Creek Stables 
gives team members 
year-round facility 

by Traci Rainbolt Come rain, snow or shine, Fox Creek Stables provided a place for the 

equestrian team to train. 

"The facility allows us to practice year-round," Head Coach Lindsay 
Breidenthal said. "It also houses five of our horses that cannot go out to 
the pasture." 

The equestrian team practiced at Fox Creek because it did not have 
its own facility. 

"When we moved there, they were one of the very few indoor facili- 
ties in Manhattan," Breidenthal said. "They offered to let us house at 
their facility, so we accepted their offer." 

Fox Creek Stables were constructed from canvas. A spacious facility,

it allowed more natural light than barns, Breidenthal said. 

Fox Creek had both indoor and outdoor sand arenas that made it 
easy for the team to work, Kristin Tanney, junior in agriculture educa- 
tion, said. 

"Fox Creek is definitely big enough for us and our shows," Tanney 
said. "But we have to bring in bleachers for places to sit." 

Fox Creek was a quality place for the team to practice because it was 
large and had an indoor arena and several places to keep horses, Whit- 
ney Mordica, senior in animal science and industry, said. 

"There's only one thing that it (Fox Creek) doesn't have that I wish it 
did," Tanney said, "I wish it had more space for parking and was closer 
to town — that way, we could have more support at our shows." 

Campaigning to raise money for a new on- campus, indoor facility

Little more than two weeks after finishing spring season, a season 
that included a second-place finish at the Big 12 Regatta, the Wild- 
cat rowing team lost seven-year Head Coach Jenny Hale when she 
announced her resignation from the program to pursue other interests. 

"I am tremendously proud and thankful for the hard work that liter- 
ally hundreds of individuals have generously contributed toward build- 
ing the program to this level," Hale said. "With the continued support 
and funding of this sport and the completion of the new team facility, 
the program's success will no doubt continue." 

Enter Patrick Sweeney, who said he hoped to build off that success. He was 
hired two months later, July 30, to take over as head coach of the program. 

"She did something I could not do in creating this program from 
scratch," Sweeney said. "At the same time this program is not quite 
there. We have a long way to go." 

Having been in rowing for more than 27 years, Sweeney's last stop had 
been assistant coach of the Stanford University Cardinal rowing team. 

Sweeney said although K- State rowing had known no other coach 
since its inception as a club sport and its advancement to intercollegiate 
athletics, he felt K- State was the right fit for him. 

"It was just trying to find out how things work here, how they are 

done at Kansas State," he said. "It took a good month to get used to 
everything and it's getting easier every week. I really felt that the team 
was ready for a change and I was looking for a good college and a good 
place to live." 

With stints in England and Belgium on the international level, and a 
wide variety of college rowing programs, Sweeney's experience made him 
director of athletics Tim Weiser's pick as the best candidate for the job. 

"We are excited about the addition of Patrick to Kansas State," Weiser 
said. "He brings an impressive resume which includes not only success at 
the collegiate level but at the international and Olympic levels. He will pro- 
vide excellent leadership in helping our rowing program move forward." 

Continuing the momentum from its spring season, the team had 
solid performances in the fall season, finishing with four top -five fin- 
ishes at the Head of the Des Moines, three top -10 finishes at the Head 
of the Iowa and capping the fall season off with a Sunflower Showdown 
victory, Nov. 8, at Tuttle Creek Reservoir. Sweeney said it was one of the 
best college rowing crowds he had seen. 

"We have to keep developing what we've got," Sweeney said. "Keep 
improving our attitudes because hard work is in the preparation. We 
could be better, but we have to realize how much better we can be."

2 runners advance to nationals, new head coach 
assumes responsibilities as team begins 

new generation of success, by Matt Gorney

With nine top -10 team finishes for the men and 11 top -10 team 
finishes for the women, the cross country season ended on a high note 
when two runners represented K- State at the NCAA Cross Country 

Junior runners Mathew Chesang and Trisha Culbertson qualified for 
the men's and women's races, respectively. 

"It was a great season for me," Chesang said. "I achieved all of the 
goals which I planned at the beginning of the season." 

He also had top-10 finishes — including two first-place finishes 
— in each of his regular season races, which lead to his first trip to the 
championships. He said the back- to -back wins at the beginning of the 
season showed how the rest of his season would go. 

"It was an indication to me that my season was going to be a good 
season," Chesang said. "It showed that I was prepared." 

Culbertson also earned a trip to the championships after her ninth - 
place finish in the Midwest Regional Championship. 

Chesang finished 127th out of 254 runners and Culbertson finished 
165th out of 252 runners at the championship meet. 

At the end of the season, Coach Randy Cole announced his decision 
to leave K- State after seven years. The decision came as a surprise to 
some team members, Culbertson said. 

Assistant coach Mike Smith was named the new head coach. 
He said the men's team did not have an exceptional season, but with 
a good recruiting year, it would begin to turn around. 

"I think there were some individual highlights and successes, but 
overall, the team performance was kind of average," Smith said. "We 
were not satisfied with the way we finished. We just need to get some 
more talented athletes. With a good recruiting year, it's going to look up 
in a couple of years. There will be no quick change." 
Smith said the same applied for the women's team. 
"(It was a) mediocre team performance, start to finish," he said. 
"The only change is we need to bring in more women who can run cross 
country competitively." 

Culbertson said she was looking forward to next season. 
"I think we'll have a bigger team, and I think that'll be good," Culb- 
ertson said. "Our conference meet is going to be in Topeka, and I think 
we'll be charged up for that."

There is an old, unspoken rule in baseball that you never talk to a 

pitcher if he is working on a no -hitter. Any mention of it could cause 

him to lose focus and worry too much about the history of the situation 

that is unfolding. 

In a nutshell, that was the story of the K- State volleyball team, who 

finished the season 30-5, ranked 11th in the nation. 

Leading up to the season, much was said about the talent of the 

returning seniors. Expectations of a Big 12 Championship and NCAA 

Tournament berth were being thrown around, leaving Coach Suzie Fritz 

and her players with a lot of pressure on their shoulders. 

All season, through 12- and 16-game winning streaks, and an 

unprecedented sweep of Nebraska, Fritz refused to rank the team among 

the best in K- State history. 

With the season over and focus shifted toward the 2004 group, she 

finally put the 2003 team where they belonged. 

"It's probably time for me to go ahead and say that this was the best 

team that we've ever had." Fritz said. "They accomplished more than 

any team we've ever had. They won a conference championship and they 

worked incredibly hard at it. They certainly deserved everything that 

came their way." 

Led by seniors Lauren Goehring, Laura Downey- Wallace and Kris 

and Cari Jensen, the Wildcats captured their first Big 12 Championship 

and beat Nebreaka at home for the first time ever. 

Fritz praised the group all season for their leadership, and claimed they 

were the ones responsible for turning 0-2 match deficits into victories. 

Watching the group grow and succeed, more than any one win or 

accomplishment, was the biggest thrill of the season, Fritz said. 

"The highlights for me were watching Laura Downey progress, and 

for that matter, all of the seniors," Fritz said. "The highlights for me are 

more the growth and improvement that, as a coach, you see the players 

make from start to finish. Those are the things that we receive a great 

deal of satisfaction from." 

Along with their first ever Big 12 Championship, the team set 12 

school records including 30 wins, 18 conference wins and a 16-game 

winning streak. 

The Cats also racked up numerous individual awards. Goehring was 

named a first-team, All- American and Big 12 Player of the Year, while 

Downey-Wallace was chosen Big 12 Libero of the Year for the second 

straight year.

they were trying to do offen- 
sively, and I thought we 
did a nice job defensively, 
especially on the block 
tonight. We continued to 
serve the ball aggressively

disturbing them offensively."

was making it into the next round of the NCAA Tournament. 

After beginning the season with the bitter aftertaste of the 3-1 home 
loss to Washington State in the second round of last year's NCAA Tour- 
nament, Fritz hoped to end the year on a better note. 

"What was difficult about the Penn State match was that towards the 
end of the year, we were playing the best volleyball that I've ever seen a 
Kansas State team play," Fritz said. 'After game one, we came out just 
rolling. We were playing very, very well in game one, and I think that 
what was difficult was that we didn't sustain it for the match."

The season ended in the Sweet 16 with 3-1 loss to the Nittany Lions. 
"Had we played the entire match like we played game one, we might 
have won that match in three games," Fritz said. "I don't know if we 
became complacent — (I) don't know, and I may never know. 

Another storyline for the 2003 Wildcats 
was their effectiveness playing at home in 
Ahearn Field House. 

Finishing with a perfect 16-0 record at 
home, Goehring said their success at home was 
due to the fact that K- State was in the Top 20 
all season in terms of attendance. 

K- State fans gave the team an added reason 
to go out and give it their all, she said. 

"The fans are great at Kansas State," Goeh- 
ring said. "They do so much for us. They create 
an environment at home that's very difficult 
for opponents to play in. It's amazing that we 
have people come that enjoy watching us play. 
We have so many people there and it gets so 
loud and rowdy — it's just so much fun to play 
for people like that." 

Fritz also entered the season with the 
added responsibility of her pregnancy. 

"I say this a lot — thousands of women are 
During the second-round pregnant or have children each and every day, so I hope that it wasn't a 

win or the NCAA tourna- r 

hindrance to my team," Fritz said. "I certainly just tried to continue to

do my job as if I weren't with child." 

Despite ending sooner than hoped, Fritz said the season was a suc- 
cess for the Cats in many ways. 

"Overall we got better as a team statistically and accomplished a 
great number of the things and goals we had set for ourselves and had 
set out to do," Fritz said.

Goehring provides team leadership, 
sets high standards of performance 

executing 1,212 career kills on the court, by Wes Marfield 

Lauren Goehring led the 2002 
K- State volleyball team with 366 
kills and a .370 hitting percent- 
age. But when award time came 
around, Goehring found herself 
named to the first team All-Big 12 
squad and an honorable mention 
All- Central Region. 

Coach Suzie Fritz said it 
seemed like Goehring was getting 
the shaft. 

In 2003, however, Goehring 
proved doubters wrong while on 
her way to being named Big 12 
Player of the Year and a first-team 

"A year ago she put up very 
similar numbers as a junior and 
was not even recognized as being 
all -region, although it should have 
happened and it just didn't," Fritz 
said. "It was a long time coming 
for Lauren, and she had both a 
fabulous junior and senior season 

and was well deserving of that 

Goehring put up career 
numbers during the 2003 season, 
setting team records for single 
season hitting percentage, .409, 
and career kills, 1,212. 

But perhaps her biggest chal- 
lenge was stepping into a new 
leadership role along with fellow 
seniors Laura Downey-Wallace 
and Kris and Cari Jensen. 

To do this, Goehring looked 
back and used what former play- 
ers taught her as she was going 
through the program. 

"There are different leader- 
ship styles that I've played under," 
Goehring said. "I picked up things 
that I liked and things that I 
didn't like, and, hopefully, I was a 
good leader to my teammates and 
brought out the best of all of the 
things that I've learned from the 

people I feel were good leaders to 

Her career complete, Goehring 
left as one of the best K- State ever 
saw, Fritz said. 

"She's for sure the best middle 
blocker that's ever played for 
Kansas State University and 
certainly one of the best players, 
period, that's ever played here," 
Fritz said. "What stands out to me 
with Lauren is that she came as a 
good player and she's leaving as a 
great player, primarily because of 
the way that she approached it." 

What would Goehring miss 
the most about her career at 
K- State? 

"The competition — working 
really hard and doing something 
I really enjoyed and loved doing," 
Goehring said. "And having 
Ahearn (Field House) full of 
people cheering for us."

Competitive club team 
becomes family for 
players throughout year. 

by Marshall Ice and Nabil Shaheen 

Although he played in high school, Elliott Disney, sophomore in 
engineering, took a hiatus from men's rugby due to a heavy class load 
and having limited time. Finally having a lighter class load, Disney was 
able to rejoin a team during spring semester of his sophomore year in 

"This semester I had a chance to come out, and I figured it'd be good 
to get back into it," Disney said. "People see it as a rough and tough 
sport, but really it's almost like how an orchestra flows when the game is 
played right. It just sort of flows. It's mad chaos, but yet, there is a mean- 
ing to it." 

Tyler Pjesky, sophomore in biological and agricultural engineering, 
played rugby competitively for the first time in his life when he joined 

the club. 

"I actually got involved through the women's rugby team," he said. 
"Being around the team is fun. It's a rough and tough sport and that's 
the kind of stuff I like." 

After getting the first few practices and games out of his system, 
Pjesky said he adjusted to the game's play. 

"It's a lot more chaotic when you start out," he said. "There is certainly 
a learning curve, but it's pretty simple after that. It's just the complexity of 
those simple things that you have to learn." 

K- State's rugby clubs began in the 1980s and played home games at 
Memorial Stadium, which assistant coach John Allen said was a great 
place to play, especially with its new, artificial turf. 

"We have arguably the best field in the country — everyone wants 
to come play us here," Allen said. "Usually teams play one game at one 
team's field and one more at the other team's. Everyone just wants to 
come here for both games." 

The men practiced from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday with 
most games occurring on weekends. They also lifted weights and condi- 
tioned together. 

The team built strong connections with other rubgy clubs. 
"Anywhere you go in the world, if you tell a rugby club you're part of 
a club, they'll take you in," Allen said. "It's like that everywhere you go."

Sometimes team records could be deceiving. 

The Women's Soccer Club was not proud of its losing season, but 
team members said the record did not tell the season's story. 

Despite a 1-14-2 record, goalkeeper Erika Greszler said the team 
viewed the season as a success. 

"Our record is not representative of our season at all," Greszler, 
junior in secondary education, said. "If we started the season playing the 
way we did at the end, things would be different. We would not have lost 
those games. We have improved a lot as a team and fought hard through 
the season." 

Allisan Butts, freshman in secondary education, said half the team's 
losses were decided by one goal. 

"It was so frustrating," she said. "The skill level of this team has 
improved so much from last year, but we just couldn't finish. We would 
have the chances and couldn't put them away." 

The team struggled with a lack of senior leadership and obtaining 
enough players to travel to away games, Head Coach David Darling said. 
"The hardest part is getting girls to want to travel," he said. "We only 
had 10 to 13 girls per game on the road. That's not enough to be success- 
ful, so we were usually not a competitive squad on the road." 
The team struggled but did make some strides, Darling said. 
Forty women showed up for fall tryouts and the club team planned 
to receive its first corporate sponsor in fall 2004. 

The pool of potential competition grew throughout the season. 
"We now have a list of 28 to 30 club team contacts at different 
schools from Texas to Colorado to Arizona," Darling said. "Next year we 
can play more games against different and more opponents. We will also 
have some financial backing there, too." 

Greszler said the team's commitment level to practice increased. The 
team averaged 15 more girls at each practice compared to last year. 

"We will be a strong team next year," Greszler said. "The foundation 
is there. There is more dedication to practice and getting better, but we 
still have a lot of work to do." 

Butts said the team has many positive things to look forward to. 
"It is very exciting for us," she said. "The team is getting more pub- 
licity. We will have more financial support next year and things can only 
get better."

Senior 2002 football standouts receive placements 
in the NFL draft with Cowboys, 

Broncos, Saints, Seahawks. by Andi Rice 

Forty-two minutes into the 2003 National Football League draft, 
former K- State cornerback Terence Newman was selected as the No. 5 
overall pick by the Dallas Cowboys. 

"This is a dream come true for me," Newman said. "It feels great 
because I grew up watching the Dallas Cowboys and this is an exciting 
day for me. I tried not to worry about which team was going to take me. 
It didn't really matter. I just wanted to play football, and I'm thankful 
Dallas took me when they did." 

After five years at K- State, Newman gradu- 
ated as arguably the best player in the history 
of the program. 

"Obviously, he's got great talent," defensive 
coordinator Bob Elliott said. "He brings all the 
other things that you want in a player. He's got 
strong character, and he's very smart. Dallas 
can probably do a lot of different things with 

Newman became the fourth Wildcat 
selected in the first round and became the second highest Cat drafted in 
K- State history. Veryl Switzer was the highest when chosen No. 3 overall 
in 1954 by Green Bay. 

Linebacker Terry Pierce, defensive end Melvin Williams and wide 
receiver Taco Wallace were also drafted in 2003 to the Denver Broncos, 
New Orleans Saints and Seattle Seahawks, respectively. 

In K- State's 107-year football history, 124 players have been drafted 
to the NFL and others have been picked up as free agents. 

"We are pleased to have youngsters in the NFL, and we've got quite 
a few," Coach Bill Snyder said, "but that is not the bottom line for our 
program. We are hoping that we can promote quality football here at 
K- State and put young people in an opportunity where they can be suc- 
cessful in life and get a quality education."

Football players bowl to 
raise money for former 
teammate's illness 

by David Skretta 

Heisman trophy candidates quarterback Ell Roberson and running 
back Darren Sproles traded their cleats for multi-colored bowling shoes, 
July 13. The football team bowled to benefit former teammate Travis 
Brown and his battle with aplastic anemia. 

Brown was diagnosed in May with the disease that affects bone 
marrow's ability to make blood properly. He underwent surgery for a 
stem cell transplant from his sister, Shelby, days later. 

Brown's medical bills were expected to exceed $300,000, prompting 
the team to organize a Bowl-a-thon at Zuckey Bowl. 

Players bowled for an hour and signed autographs for donations. 
Senior linebacker Josh Buhl initiated the idea and said the event was 
something small that could make a big difference. 

"It's a great idea," Buhl said. "We wanted to do something that was 
fun, easy and able to get a lot of people to come out. The guys were up 
for it and really wanted to do it." 

While aplastic anemia is rare, occurring in three of every 1 million 
Americans, assistant coach Bob Elliott could relate to Brown's plight. 
Elliott received a bone marrow transplant in the spring of 1999 to treat a 
similar disease. 

"I've been in Travis's shoes, and I'm sure he was scared to death 
of what was going to happen," Elliott said, "but Travis looks at this as 
a positive in his life. He's learned a lot about himself and the people 
around him. His teammates have learned a bit about themselves, too, 
when they see what Travis is experiencing. It's an event that makes you 
reflect on where you're going and what you go through." 

Roberson said the Bowl-a-thon allowed players to experience cama- 
raderie before the season, as well as allowing them to interact with the 
Wildcat nation. 

"It's great to just be out here in this environment with the fans," 
Roberson said. "We don't get that too often. To get the whole team 
together and to sign autographs makes it all worthwhile for us." 

Although the day was light-hearted, players remembered the well 
being of their friend and former punter. 

"Travis has a pretty good understanding of the issues he's dealing 
with and how to go about it," Coach Bill Snyder said. "He's a young guy 
who sees how fortunate he is to have a number of people who genuinely 
care about him. He sees it as one of life's experiences and is prepared to 
move on." 

K-State linebacker Ted Sims 
eyes the pins while bowling 
with the football team at 
Zuckey Bowl. Assistant 
coach Bob Clements helped 
organize the Bowl-a-thon, 
which benefitted former 
player Travis Brown. "We

and feel for what he's going 
through right now," Clement:

As players remained on the field and savored victory, Coach Bill 
Snyder reflected on being Big 12 Champion.

"I think everyone in America probably counted us out and thought 
we were going to go downhill," senior defensive end Andrew Shull said, 
"but we fought back. We're fighters and we came out on top." 

The Wildcats, considered by many to be done halfway through the 
season, finished as conference champion and earned the right to face 
reigning national champion Ohio State in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. The 
Bowl Championship Series bid was the first in K- State history. 

After the seventh game of a record 15 -game season, the Cats suf- 
fered their third consecutive loss at the hands of the Oklahoma State 
Cowboys, Oct. 11. Having already lost to Texas the previous week and

It had been 28 days since victory. 

"Three-in-a-row is not fun, plus we had the week off, so it's been a 
long time since these youngsters have experienced a win," Snyder said. 
"I've got to believe that there is a group of young guys who have tremen- 
dous character, a great deal of heart and care about each other, believe in 
the program, believe in the university and want to represent it as well as 

they possibly can and are not about to give themselves up."

Coach Bill Snyder called it "the most significant win" in his 15 years 
at K- State. 

Oklahoma Coach Bob Stoops, Snyder's former apprentice, said the 
Wildcats "really took it to us in every part of the game." 

K- State's 35-7 victory over Oklahoma was the Sooners' first of two 
consecutive losses and the Wildcats' seventh consecutive win. 

"It felt like any time we were able to breathe life into our team, 
something would suck it back out," Oklahoma receiver Mark Clayton 
said. "Things were not going our way offensively, defensively or special 
teams wise." 

Senior quarterback Ell Roberson led the charge by throwing for 227 
yards with four touchdowns. He also had 72 rushing yards. 

"They had a great front four that everybody talked about," Roberson 
said. "I really think that our O-line rose to the occasion, made some key 
blocks for us and picked up some blitzes that really helped us out a lot. 
"The little man, Sproles, he stepped up and just had a great day. It 
was just a great team effort. We were the better team in every aspect of 
the game today." 

Considered dead after a three -game losing streak, K- State bounced 
back, winning six-in-a-row, before they faced the No. 1 team in the 
country and what many had considered perhaps the best team in col- 
legiate football history. 

The Wildcats were supposed to be the final hurdle in the Sooners' 
steam-roll drive to the Nokia Sugar Bowl and a national title. 

Oklahoma went on to play, and eventually lose to, Louisiana State 

But at least they couldn't clear the Cats, senior linebacker Josh Buhl 

"I believe in them," he said. "We just wanted to make sure they 
didn't win against us." 

Junior running back Darren Sproles broke free for a record-setting 
345 yards of total offense in the game. 

"I am just glad we won," Sproles said. "We were the better team 
today. They are still a great team." 

Eleven days after Coach Suzie Fritz and the volleyball team won 
K- State's second ever Big 12 title, the Wildcat football team, after facing 
struggles and adversity throughout the year, clinched the third and first 
for Snyder. 

"I'm really happy that it got to happen on my terms," Buhl said. "I'm 
really glad that I got a chance to be a part of his first Big 12 Champion- 
ship, something we set off at the beginning of the year as one of our 
goals. It just feels great to us because it was something that we wanted 
to do and we ended up accomplishing that, and that means a lot to this 
team and this program." 

Catching a pass, senior 
tight end James Terry 
reaches over Oklahoma 
defender Antonio Perkins 
to pull in the ball and score 
a touchdown at the Big 1 2 
Championship. The score 
gave the Wildcats a 14-7 
lead over the Sooners at 
Arrowhead Stadium in 
Kansas City, Mo., a lead 
the Cats would keep, and 
build on, the remainder of 
the game. "I think the Okla- 
homa game gave us a lot 
of confidence, but we had 
a lot of confidence going 
into that game," senior 
defensive end Andrew Shull 
said. "We realized we were 
a very capable team and 
that we had a lot of talent 
and we just pulled together 
and that win helped give us 
a lot of confidence for this 
game." Photo by

Spotlight falls on Wildcats at Fiesta Bowl 

where team fought hard 

to overcome tough defense, controvery. by Nabil Shaheen 

In the end, it was simply an 
Ohio State victory over K- State, 
35-28, in what was supposed to 
be a defensive battle. But it was 
not any ordinary Tostitos Fiesta 

"We're playing Kansas State," 
Ohio State Coach Jim Tressel 
said. "They're not going to stop. 
They've got great athletes, great 
coaches, great belief in their 
system and their program. You 
knew it was going to be a 
60 -minute game. We're just happy 
at the end, when the final tick 
went off, we got the win." 

The game pitted one of the 
country's better defenses against 
one of the better offenses. 

It was junior running back 
Darren Sproles, who finished the 
game with only 13 carries for 38 
yards, taking on the No. 1 rushing 
defense in the country. 

It was the detail- oriented 
Tressel against the even more 
detail- oriented Coach Bill Snyder. 

It was the Buckeyes' second 
consecutive Bowl Championship 

Series bowl game victory against 
the Wildcats' potential first 
12-win season. 

But as the hours to kickoff 
ticked away, all attention focused 
on what happened off the field 
that was not related to Xs or Os. 

With 14:54 left in the first 
quarter, senior quarterback Ell 
Roberson went under center 
for his ninth consecutive start. 
Although certainly a factor for 
both sides of the ball with his 
passing and running abilities, all 
73,471 sets of eyes were on No. 3 
due to allegations of sexual assault 
from the morning of Jan. 1. The 
case eventually proceeded no fur- 
ther and no charges were filed. 

In the 40 hours leading up to 
the game, many unanswered ques- 
tions remained, but one thing was 
clear, the decision of what to do 
with Roberson would be Snyder's 
alone, and it would not be known 
until kickoff. 

"We've been really mature," 
senior center Nick Leckey said. 
"Everything was handled as best 

as it possibly could. We handled 
adversity all season long. It was 
another bump on the road, some- 
thing that really needed to try to 
get this team together, try to play 
as one. It just drew us even closer." 

In a well-matched and 
well-prepared game, the victor 
was not decided until the final 
Wildcat possession. A 53 -yard 
pass attempt, with six seconds 
left, from Roberson to sophomore 
wide receiver Davin Dennis was 
swatted out of the reach of Dennis 
and senior receiver James Terry by 
a swarming Buckeye defense. 

"(Situations surrounding the 
game) can be an excuse, I don't 
mean for it," Snyder said. "Ohio 
State beat Kansas State University 
and they did it because they were 
the better football team tonight 
and they played very well. They 
need to be proud of that and I'm 
sure they are. 

"Did we play as we're capable 
of? No, we didn't. Would that 
have changed the outcome? I don't 
know that for a fact, either."

Intramural ultimate 
Frisbee gains popularity 
among students 

by Matt Gorney 

Rushing down field with a 
defender half a step behind, a 
player leaps to make the catch in 
the end zone. Clutched between 
his palms was a flying disc. 

Ultimate Frisbee games were 
played with two teams of seven 
people each. Players passed the 
disc to other members of their 
team and scored by having a 
reception in the end zone. 

"The best part of ultimate 

Frisbee is watching all the people 
who are better than you play," 
Joseph Sledd, sophomore in open- 
option, said. "Some people get 
real creative on their throws and 

Players in possession of the 
disc were not allowed to run, but 
could only set one foot to pivot 
from. Throwers, if guarded, had 
only 10 seconds to make a throw 
without causing a turnover. Rec- 

reation Services did not provide 
referees for the sport, so players 
called their own fouls. 

"It's really hard to defend a 
team if they're good," Patrick W. 
O'Donnell, sophomore in business 
administration, said. "Probably the 
best part is completing a hard pass 
— diving for it and catching it." 

O'Donnell and Sledd played 
as members of Haymaker Hall's 
eighth-floor intramural team. 

Steve Martini, associate direc- 
tor of recreation services, said 
ultimate Frisbee was a popular 
intramural sport at the Chester E. 
Peters Recreational Complex. 

"It's been pretty successful 
as far as numbers," Martini said. 
"It's enough that we know there's 
students who want to play." 

Eric Williams, junior in 
marketing, played for The Flying 

"The hardest part is getting 
guys to show up," Williams said. 
"Everybody's really busy. It's hard 
to get everybody together." 

He said the sport, which also 
had summer leagues, was for 
people of all ages. 

"I've played with guys in their 
60s and in their 50s," he said. "All 
you need are cones and a disc." 

Because of the simple rules, 
beginners could easily learn ulti- 

mate Frisbee, Williams said. 

"There's only two rules in the 
game that you need to know when 
you start," he said. "Any begin- 
ner can come out and catch on 

Williams also said it was easy 
to become proficient at the game. 

"If you played one summer, 
you'd get everything you need," he 
said. "If you practice at it, you'd 
get good in two years."

Despite long hours of study veterinary medicine 
students take time out for a little fun 

on the playing field, by Andi Rice 

With 21 hours of course work per semester and 40 to 50 hours of 
studying each week, 15 veterinary medicine majors made time to play 
six games in the intramural softball league at the Chester E. Peters 
Recreation Complex. 

"We pretty much make the time," Brian Pileggi, third-year student, 
said. "Studying by your third year usually isn't that big of a deal." 

Third-year class members averaged 40 
hours in class each week but softball offered 
a break, David Lensing, third-year student, 

"(Softball) helps us get along better," he 
said. "When you are at school, in class, you 
are studying, you're doing surgery or doing 
lab, whatever the case may be, and it's just a 
way for us to get away from school and not 
have to worry about academia." 

Softball began in March and finished in 
May with a playoff tournament. 

"We just basically got together and decided that we would make 
the effort to come and try to win the tournament," Joseph Skavdahl, 
third-year student, said. "We're athletic and pretty good hitters, and 
we wanted to try and put a trophy in the vet school trophy case from 

Despite having limited free time, the students found it easy to break 
away from class work, Lensing said. 

"We really don't talk about school on the field," Lensing said. "We'll 
just make jokes from stuff we've learned in class and stuff like that. It's 
kind of a closed organization and people who don't know vet med or 
medicine in general, they probably find no humor in what we say and 
probably have no idea what we are talking about. 

"As far as school work is concerned, we don't come out on the 
diamond from a test and say 'hey, what did you get for answer 32?' We 
don't do that. (Softball) is just a way to get away from the school work."

get away from the school 
work somehow and relieve 
the stress. A lot of us played 
athletics in high school and 
some of us in college and if 
you're an athlete, you just 
need to get out and do it."

Ranging from laid-back to 
ultra- competitive, 225 teams 
participated in the intramural flag 
football season. 

Teams were divided among 
five divisions, and 598 games were 
played on the fields at the Chester 
E. Peters Recreational Complex, 
Steve Martini, associate director 
of recreational services, said. 

Travis Rudisill played on 
two football teams — G5 for the 
residence hall division, and co- 
educational team Shingles for the 
co -recreational division. 

"Co-ed's more fun, because 
you get to play with girls," Rudis- 
ill, senior in architectural engi- 
neering, said. "It puts a different 
perspective on the game." 

Rudisill's team of fifth-floor 
Goodnow Hall residents played 
together in 2002 as well. Through- 
out the season, they faced off 
against a team of former fifth- 
floor residents, called XG5. 

"We were pretty good friends," 
Rudisill said. "We practiced a lot 

and kind of talked a lot of crap on 
them. It was fun because they were 
all really good friends of ours." 

Amy Link, senior in mass 
communications, also partici- 
pated in the Goodnow football 
rivalry. In addition to playing for 
the women's division champions, 
a team also called Shingles, she 
played for XG5. 

"There's been some rivalry," 
Link said. "We played (G5) twice 
this year. The first time it was 
really close and we won, but they 
beat us the second time. It was 
a friendly rivalry, but there was 
some good competition." 

Link said she played on co-ed 
teams for three years, but this 
was her first time playing in the 
women's division. 

"We had a really good season," 
she said. "We were really surprised 
to do so well. It was really laid- 
back — we didn't even meet all 
of our teammates until the first

rivalry, Link said other rivalries 
existed in flag football. 

"There was always a little of 
the independent- greek rivalry," 
she said. "It was really fun when 
we played a sorority team. They 
had uniforms and coaches, and for 
us, it was a sweet victory, because 
they were calling out plays and we 
don't have any plays." 

Rebecca Nichols, freshman in 
pre-health, said she enjoyed play- 
ing for the Alpha Delta Pi team 
because she became better friends 
with her sorority sisters. 

"I liked just having fun with 
the girls," Nichols said. "It was a 
good way to get to know every- 

Competition aside, Link 
said making friends and having 
fun were the best reasons to get 
involved in flag football. 

"It's a good way to meet new

always fun to do something you 
do well."

The K- State track and field team concluded its indoor season by 
sending seven members to the 2004 NCAA Indoor Championships. 

Five women and two men went to Fayetteville, Ark., expecting the 

"We have some girls who are real good athletes, and if they do what they 
can, they'll place high," junior JaNelle Wright said. "I have all the confidence

Junior Chaytan Hill finished second in the women's triple jump, 
with a 44 - 08.25 distance. It was her second best jump of the season, 
after setting the school record in the event at the Big 12 Championships. 
Hill missed out on the National Championship by 2.5 inches behind 
Nebraska's Ineta Radevica. 

Although sophomore Christian Smith competed at nationals last 
season, he did not make the finals. This year, he made the finals a goal, 
reached it and went further. 

Smith was named an All-American in the men's 800-meter run. He 
ran his second best time of the season, 1:48.18 and finished less than a 
second behind national champion Nate Brannen of Michigan. 

"Christian doesn't have as much experience as some guys he'll be 
running against, but he is every bit as talented," Coach Cliff Rovelto 

Wright was also an All-American after finishing fourth with 4,173 
points in the women's pentathlon. After winning the Big 12 Champion- 
ship, she placed fourth at the NCAA Indoor Championship. Her point 
total was her best of the season and only 16 points away from third 

The fourth Cat to be named an All-American was Kyle Lancaster 
who placed third in the men's high jump with a 2.20 -meter jump on the 
first day of competition. 

Senior Rebekah Green represented K- State in the women's shot 
put, and seniors Morgan High and Marta Borkowska competed in the 
women's high jump, but none received honors. 

As a team, the men and women finished well against the national 
competition. The men finished in 16th place with 14 points, and the 
women finished with 13 points to tie for 16th with California Polytech- 
nic State University. 

At the Big 12 Championship, the men's team finished second with 77 
points behind Nebraska, 141.66 points. The women's team finished third 
with 69 points behind Nebraska, 171.5, and Texas, 158.

Men end season at .500 
mark, break road-losing 
streak against Nebraska. 

by Matthew Girard 

The season was one of challenges. 

Struggling through injuries, inexperience and close games, the 
men's basketball team managed to finish with a 15-15 record. The .500 
season marked the first time in five years that the team did not end with 
a losing record. 

"It was a season marked with a lot of different challenges our players 
had to overcome," Coach Jim Wooldridge said. "We were the most inex- 
perienced team in this league and the injuries we had to fight through 
were really difficult at times to overcome." 

Despite the obstacles, K- State finished the Big 12 Conference season 
tied for ninth with a conference record of 6-10. 

The Wildcats nabbed the No. 9 seed in the Big 12 Tournament, but 
were upended by No. 8 Iowa State Cyclones, 78-64, ending K- State's 
season and a chance at a National Invitational Tournament invite. 

"I was really proud of our guys in the way they handled the season," 
Wooldridge said. "There were stretches where it could have come apart, 
but they held themselves together and kept believing." 

The Wildcats had a strong home season winning 12 and only drop- 
ping four at Bramlage Coliseum. K- State's biggest home victory came 
March 6 against the No. 10 Texas Longhorns, 58-48. 
Justin Williams, junior "There were a lot of people watching us and we affect a lot of people 

forward, reaches around on campus, and it just feels great to give them what they wanted," senior 
guard Jarrett Hart said. 

The Cats ended the 21 -game conference road-losing streak with a 
win in Lincoln, Neb. against the Cornhuskers, 63-58. 

"The win at Nebraska showed us that we were really making prog- 
ress," Wooldridge said. "It gave our team more confidence, and it had a 
lot of impact on our program."

Although K-State lost 14 games, 10 of those 14 losses came by a total 
of only 58 points. 

"It's a wall we have to break through, but the gap is closing," Coach 
Jim Wooldridge said. 

K- State finished in the middle of the Big 12 in scoring with 69.4 
points per game, 45 percent field goal percentage and 34 percent 3 -point 

lunior forward Jeremiah Massey led the offense and defense. Massey 
topped K- State in nine different categories by scoring 14.7 points per 
game, rebounding 7.8 points per game, finishing 10, 20 -point games 
and hitting eight double -doubles. 

The Detroit native and junior college transfer also was named Big 12 
Newcomer of the Year. 

"Once he got through the first part of the season, his numbers were 
astonishing," Wooldridge said. 

Two other Wildcats had solid seasons and joined Massey with con- 
ference post- season honors. Jarrett Hart was selected as a member of the 
Big 12 All -Underrated Team and was the vocal leader of the Wildcats. 
Hart ended his senior season third in scoring with 10.9 points per 
game, fourth in rebounds with 3.6 points per game and second in assists 
with 3.1 per game. 

Although hampered by a leg-injury during the last 10 games of the 
season, Hart played in all but one game for K- State. 

Senior guard Tim Ellis also had a solid senior season. Ellis led the 
team with an 81 percent in field goal percentage. Ellis scored 13.8 points 
per game and hit 20 points or more five times during the season. 

"As seniors, we took charge a little bit and tried to show the young 
guys how to win," Ellis said.

Absolutely nothing. 

That was the only thing Coach Deb Patterson could guarantee her 
recruits in the 2000-2001 basketball season for an incoming class led by 
Nicole Ohlde. 

A year later, another class filled with unlimited potential joined the 
Wildcats, led by Kendra Wecker and Megan Mahoney. 

"The vision the coaches had for this program was really, really 
motivating and was the reason I came here," Wecker, junior forward, 
said. "The reason I came here was to turn this program into a Top 25 
program and that was the goal and it just happened so quick. We've all 
learned how to be in this system. 

"Now here we are — a top 10 team, Big 12 champions. It's almost 
happened too quick, like 'whoa, here it is.'" 

The moment arrived March 3 when K- State routed No. 9 Texas Tech 
on its way to earning a first ever Big 12 Conference championship, shar- 
ing the regular season title with Texas. 

It was the team's first conference title in more than 15 years and the 
school's fourth Big 12 title in any sport since the start of the conference. 

As confetti fell from the Bramlage Coliseum rafters and video 
highlights of the team's championship season were displayed, more 
than 10,000 fans celebrated the victory and team members prepared to 
cut down the nets — but not before senior All-American center Nicole 
Ohlde became the first athlete in K- State history to have her jersey 

"Ohlde's all-around game might get overlooked sometimes," 
Mahoney said. "Tonight, Ohlde was pumped up and aggressive and 
that's how she can play It's great to be on her team. I'm just glad I got to 
be a part of her career here."

dream season 

continued from page 294 

In her senior season, Nicole Ohlde cemented herself as one of the 
greatest women's basketball players ever to don a K- State jersey. 

She became the all-time leading scorer in K- State men's or women's 
basketball history, all-time leading scorer in Big 12 history, and all-time 
leading rebounder in school history, among many other accolades that 
earned Ohlde her second consecutive Big 12 Player of the Year award. 

"Nicole Ohlde is far and away in my opinion the best player to walk 
into this program," Coach Deb Patterson said. "She epitomizes every- 
thing we have wanted Kansas State women's basketball to be about. She 
is a person of integrity, very humble, very dedicated to her team but at 
the same time brings a total commitment to personal excellence." 

After winning a share of the Big 12 regular season title, the team 
again made an early exit at the 2004 Phillips 66 Big 12 Women's Basket- 
ball Tournament when they were ousted by eventual champion Okla- 
homa in the semifinals.

Much the way it began, the team ended its regular season on a losing 
note, but the dream season, which included the Big 12 title, a national 
ranking as high as No. 5 and plenty of new records written and rewrit- 
ten, was not one that any Wildcat will soon forget. 

"It was especially hard making that commitment to come to a pro- 
gram that no one has ever heard of," Kendra Wecker said. "That says a 
lot about these coaches but it also says a lot about these players who have 
made that commitment. They chose to come here and turn this program 
around and it was really hard to dream about it happening until we 
actually got here. 

"It feels like you've accomplished something so great. Who would 
have dreamed that Kansas State women's basketball would be a top 10 
team and Big 12 champion. It's just awesome."

K- State's NCAA dreams 
shortened by Minnesota 
in 2nd round of tourney.

Yet again, it ended all too soon. 

"We didn't play Kansas State basketball and we knew we needed to 
change that," senior center Nicole Ohlde said. 

The team went into the NCAA Tournament with its highest seeding 
ever — No. 2 — and ended its postseason run March 23 on the floor of 
Williams Arena against a feisty No. 7 seeded Minnesota, 80-61. 

"We just didn't show up in the first 20 minutes and they took full 
advantage of that right from the tipoff," junior forward Kendra Wecker said. 

The Wildcats trailed by 26 at halftime shooting a little more than 23 
percent. In the second half the Cats actually outscored the Gophers but 
the deficit was too large to overcome. 

"You learn a lot about how tough you're capable of being when you 
see how we played in the second half," Coach Deb Patterson said. "I don't 
know if anybody will ever face an environment like this in the NCAAs." 

The crowd of 13,425 loud and rowdy fans was the sixth largest in the 
history of first or second round games in the women's NCAA Tournament. 

Ohlde led all scorers with 23 while junior guard Megan Mahoney 
chipped in 17 points. 

"(Mahoney) did everything that we needed from her today and then 
some," Wecker said. "She was her typical self just coming out defending, being 
aggressive, putting points on the board. She did everything she needed to do." 

K- State defeated Valparaiso in the teams' first-round matchup, 71-63. 

"I'm just happy to be at this point. I'm really proud of what we've 
done," senior forward Amy Dutmer said. "We've had an awesome season, 
it just comes down to being tougher. It was do or die and we just didn't 
make it happen." 

After all the tears dried, the hugs exchanged and the ice applied to sore 
joints, Koehn said those who return next season would start preparing 

"We gotta start picking ourselves back up and get ready for next year 
because that's the only thing we can do," she said.

Although difficult to place a 
number on the consecutive home 
games he had attended, Lipson 
said he had not missed a game at 
Wagner Field since 1972. 

In addition to home games, 
following the Wildcats has taken 
him on barnstorming trips 
throughout campuses in the Big 
12 Conference, to both coasts and 
even Japan. 

Lipson spoke modestly about 
his zeal for K- State and pointed 
to a support base of many rather 
than one. 

"K- State has the best fans in 
college athletics," he said. 

Lipson was a popular person 
to talk to as he made the rounds at 
pre -game tailgate parties. 

People called him by his first 
name and asked for his thoughts 
on the game to be played later in 
the evening. 

"I visit all the people I can," 
Lipson said. 

Although he took little credit 
or pleasure from his widespread 
acclaim, those inside the football 
program, past and present, said 
they admired Lipson for his con- 
tinued backing of the Cats. 

BillMolitor, 1994-1997 Wildcat 

defensive end, said he remembered 
Lipson as a funny, older man who 
always carried a purple foam finger. 

"He's been there for years," 
Molitor said. "You know, I think he's 
been there forever." 

Senior linebacker 
Josh Buhl said Lipson 
was one constant the 
Wildcats could count 
on each Saturday. 

"He's the first fan 
we see when we get 
off the bus," Buhl 
said. "He's the one fan we know 
for sure will be there." 

As fans go, Lipson was at a 
level with few others, Buhl said. 

"Robert's one-of-a-kind, there 
aren't many like him," he said. 
"We love all of our fans but he 
takes it to a different extreme."

Lipson became an honorary 
coordinator for the Wildcats on 
occasion. Each season, Lipson, 
who always dabbled and tinkered 
with a play he was sure the Wild- 
cats could succeed with, received 
a chance to put his hypothesis to 
the test. 

Coach Bill Snyder ran Lipson's 
play each year, Molitor said. 

his focus and attention transfixed 
on the field. 

After sprinting past the Mis- 
souri Tigers 24-14, the Wildcats 
wrapped -up the Big 12 North 
division title, which led to a 
daunting challenge at the Big 12 
Championship: the number- one 
ranked Oklahoma Sooners. 
Lipson, who, like so many 
"He would make up a play that Wildcat fans, was burned by high 
he thought would beat Nebraska," expectations in 1998, proved cau- 

Molitor said. "One game a year, 
Snyder would let him do it, 
usually before a big game like 
Nebraska. He would show (the 
players) how they were supposed 
to line up. It always worked." 

At game time, Lipson stood in 
a section of the stadium and lis- 
tened to the game on his radio, all

tious with his pre-game assess- 
ment of the match -up. 

"I learned a big lesson," Lipson 
said. "In 1998, 1 was so convinced 
we were going to win. I was 
equally convinced we would lose 
against Oklahoma." 

But the Wildcats threw one of 
their biggest supporters a curve 

ball, pounding the undefeated 
Sooners, 35-7, at Arrowhead Sta- 
dium in Kansas City, Mo. 

"We destroyed," Lipson said. 

The next game for the Wild- 
cats, and for Lipson, was the 
Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, and the 
team's first appearance in a Bowl 
Championship Series game. 

K- State played Ohio State Uni- 
versity, an institution Lipson almost 
chose before enrolling at K- State. 

Lipson said his role revolv- 
ing around the football team was 
relatively unimportant. 

"If I can make a difference in 
the outcome of a game, regardless 
of how slight and insignificantly 
small, then and only then can I 
take some pride in their accom- 
plishment," he said.

The roar of Aggieville on Friday and Saturday, the K- State Student Union during 
the lunch hour or just the traffic on the sidewalks between classes, people interacted 
with one another. 

Whether in residence halls, scholarship houses, greek organizations or apartment 
complexes, the living group was a focal point for activity. 

The women of Delta Delta Delta spent a seasonal October Sunday cleaning their 
neighborhood and sponsored a barbecue for their neighbors hoping to become better 
acquainted and keep open the lines of communication. 

A blind date at Marlatt Hall was more than a time to interact with people when 
the lights were turned off and attendees experienced dinner blind. 

As part of Wildcat Welcome Week at K- State -Salina, students went to Jumpin' 
Joe's Entertainment Center to play video games, compete in laser tag and ride go- 
karts. The evening provided new and returning students a chance to get to know one 


Students' interaction did not stop at the end of classes. Greek philanthropies, 
residence hall get-togethers and campus-wide events allowed students to meet, 
mingle and form friendships.

Program educates female drivers 

It sounded like the set-up of a 
horror movie — a young woman 
drives alone at night when her car 
breaks down. With no idea how 
to fix the problem, she timidly sits 
on the side of the road, waiting 
for help to arrive, but she is never 
heard from again. 

Situations like that were 
exactly what Boyd Hall resident 
assistants Rebecca S. Jones, junior 
in elementary education, and 
Amy Martin, senior in psychol- 
ogy, wanted to prevent. Jones and 
Martin hosted a program for Boyd 
residents called "Riding in Cars 
with Girls," Oct. 6. 

"It's a clear stereotype, albeit 
sometimes true, that women 
aren't always knowledgeable when 
it relates to knowing how to take 
care of their car," Martin said. 
"The consequences of not know- 
ing can be great." 

Martin said a bad experience 

on the road prompted her and 
Jones to organize the program 
about driving safety and car main- 

"Becca and I decided to do this 
as we were helping out a friend 
jump her car and realized that we 
had no idea how to jump a car," 
Martin said. "It was because of 
that we realized that we weren't 
the only ones who didn't know." 
Jones and Martin asked other 
RAs to volunteer to perform dem- 
onstrations educating residents 
about car safety. Jacob Crockford, 
Moore Hall RA and sophomore in 
agricultural economics, took the 

Crockford said the women's 
level of car experience was about 
what he expected. 

"For the most part, it was 
fitting under the stereotype that 
they could probably do it if they 
had to, but they really don't know 

by Jaci Boydston 

how," Crockford said. "We did 
have some people who were more 
knowledgeable. My dad taught my 
sisters how to change a tire, and 
there are a few dads who do that." 

Along with demonstrating 
how to change oil, jump a bat- 
tery and change a tire, Crockford 
gave suggestions for emergency 
car supplies and dispelled some 

"There is no blinker fluid," 
Crockford said. "Whenever a guy 
tries to talk you into changing 
your blinker fluid, go up to him 
and smack him." 

Kelsey Lovelady, freshman in 
elementary education, attended 
the event with friends from her 
floor and said she learned more 
about her car. 

"It made me feel better about 
driving my car," Lovelady said. "I 
wouldn't be so scared if something 
happened now."

their cars, Jacob Crockford, 
sophomore in agricultural 
economics, demonstrates 
how to change a tire at the

the need for an educational 
program about cars, as 
college students are typi-

and need to know how to 
prepare and maintain their 
cars for travel to see friends 
and parents," Amy Martin,

"In recognizing that Becca

for old rooms 

by Jennifer Newberry 

Ford Hall received a makeover when rooms were remodeled 
into suites. Construction began in June 2003, and would be com- 
pleted by August 2004, said Derek Jackson, assistant director of 
the Department of Housing and Dining Services. When finished, 
two to four suites would share a bathroom. 

One wing was closed for remodeling during the fall semester. 
At semester break, students moved belongings to the finished side, 
and, during the second semester, the other half was remodeled. 

"They're excited about moving into suites," Jackson said. 
"Students were aware in advance of moving. There was some 
discomfort associated with it. But we had people available to help 
the students move." 

Though moving at semester was inconvenient, the suites were 
still worth it, Megan Frazier, freshman in elementary education, said. 

"There are construction workers and other people available to help 
us," Laura Filiatreault, sophomore in biology, said. "It won't be too bad." 

Suites gave women more selection in choosing a residence hall. 

"We looked at what the students want: privacy, amenities, 

space and a bathroom," Jackson said. "We were looking to do 
some restructuring anyway." 

In addition to increased privacy and convenience, students 
still received benefits of residence halls, such as food preparation 
and the time factor of living close to campus, Jackson said. 

Living in a suite cost an additional $570 per semester. A regu- 
lar room, based on the 20-meal plan, cost $2,400. A two-person 
suite, based on the 20-meal plan, cost $2,970. 

Despite the increased cost, students were positive towards the 
idea of suites, Jackson said. 

"This is driven off motivation from students," he said. 
"They're excited to have these amenities." 

Though students would have to leave friends they made fall 
semester behind, the excitement of a brand-new room trumped 
everything, Frazier said. 

"The suites will be a little bit bigger so that will be nice," she 
said. "They will be new and clean, so it will be nice to be the first 
people to live in them."

Dancers find resourceful outfits 

Armed with $5 and a creative mind, residents of Goodnow Hall 
prepared for the $5 Formal. 

The event was organized by the Goodnow Hall Governing Board 
on the basketball courts north of Kramer Dining Center. 

"It was very successful," Mishelle Banas, residence life coordina- 
tor, said. "It was one of the first programs our new governing board 
was putting in place. It was really exciting to be able to see them take 
a creative idea and put some planning behind it and see the fruits 
of their labor, so to speak. And with mocktails, there was definitely 
some educational value behind it for the residents." 

Mocktails, alcohol-free cocktails, were served during the formal, 
Oct. 21, with other snacks and refreshments. The mocktails also 
coincided with beer goggles and a drunk driving simulation. 

"The HGB did the actual dance and refreshments," Tiffany 
Happer, senior in architectural engineering, said. "We had four 
different mocktail drinks — pina colada, strawberry daiquiri and 
mocktinis — and we had what the drinks would be without alcohol. 
The drunk driving simulation showed people who were sober what 
drunk driving was like to deter them from doing it in the future."

While the event was on a school night, Denise Dinkel, events 
coordinator for Goodnow and sophomore in business administra- 
tion, said she thought there was a good turnout and looked forward 
to improving it next year. 

"I just wanted to do an event for the hall to relax and have fun 
halfway through the semester," she said. "I was really glad because a 
lot of people got into it and we had a pretty good turnout. One of the 
(KSDB-FM 91.9) people wanted to do a live spot from the residence 
halls, and they were willing to DJ for free. They did a really good job 
which was really nice. They catered to us." 

Perhaps the most entertaining part of the evening, Dinkel said, was the 
costuming and seeing what people could come up with at a formal where 
the spending limit for outfits was $5, hence the event's name. 

"We had a lot of interesting outfits," she said. "Some people wore 
bridesmaids and prom dresses from their moms from the '70s. Some 
went to the Salvation Army. Some people dressed in crazy clothes. 
A guy made a blazer out of duct tape. A couple of guys made skirts 
out of pompoms — people got creative — (and) if they couldn't get 
creative, they kind of just made stuff up last minute."

The advertisements invited single, interested men and women of 
Marlatt and West halls to participate in a blind date. 

Twenty responded. Some expected to make a connection with the 
opposite sex. Others were curious about the secrecy behind the event. 

After introductions, they gathered around a large table in the 
Marlatt Hall conference room to eat free pizza. 

Then the lights went out. 

"That's when it clicked," Tracy Reif, junior in secondary educa- 
tion, said. "I'd heard of programs like that before." 

Reif, resident assistant for West Hall, said she realized the objec- 
tive of the blind date was to teach participants what it was like to be 

Benjamin Lawrence, senior in mechanical engineering, organized 
the activity. As the multicultural assistant for Marlatt, Lawrence said 
he wanted to provide education and an appreciation for disabled 

"After the lights went out, I heard someone say, 'this is hard,' and 
I thought, yeah, it is," Lawrence said. "I wanted them to realize what 
new things you have to take into consideration when you're disabled." 

Reif said she became aware of challenges faced by visually 
impaired people. 

"I was talking to people I knew, but it was weird to talk to them in

the dark," she said. "You hear about people with disabilities and how 
hard it is for them, but this made it real for me - it made it hit home." 

Jason Black, senior in mechanical engineering and a Marlatt RA, 
said he was aware of the plans for the evening, but still learned from 
the experience. 

"(Lawrence) presented a really good point about if you've never 
been exposed to that kind of thing, or if you've never lived with a 
disability, you wouldn't really think about it from their perspective," 
Black said. 

After dinner, Justin Mahan, freshman in construction science 
and management, spoke to the group about what life was like as a 
physically disabled person. 

"He had been struck by a drunken driver, and as a result, spent 
a good portion of time in a wheelchair," Lawrence said. "He became 
aware of what it was like to be fully functional and then to lose that 
ability. Because of that, he was able to present this subject on a deep, 
personal level." 

Lawrence said he thought the evening was a success. 

"Most guys went in with the idea that they would be ending the 
night with a girl," he said. "There was still plenty of interaction with 
the opposite sex, but they also learned to be grateful for the stuff you 
take for granted in day-to-day life." 


Covering her face after an 
embarrassing comment, 
Tracy Reif, junior in second- 
ary education, is consoled 
byjason Black, senior in 
mechanical engineering. 
Students from Marlatt and 
West halls participated 
in a blind date activity, 
Nov. 23, which turned out 
to be different than most 
expected - instead of 
making a love connection, 
they learned what life was 
like as a disabled person. 
"I realized that there are a 
lot of aspects of my life that 
I consider normal activities, 
that to a disabled person 
may be insurmountable 
tasks," said Black. Photo by

Diversity team pushes recognition 

Inspired by World AIDS Day, 
Dec. 1, the Moore Hall Diversity 
Team educated residents about 
the AIDS epidemic by organizing 
AIDS Awareness Week, Dec. 7-11. 

In addition to asking Moore 
residents to sign AIDS quilt 
blocks, the diversity team orga- 
nized an open discussion and 
invited Sexual Health Awareness 
Peer Educators to speak. 

Diversity team members said 
they were surprised to learn few 
students knew the seriousness of 
the AIDS virus. 

"It was kind of amazing how 
many people didn't know what the 
AIDS quilt was or what the AIDS 
crisis itself was," Anthony Garcia, 
freshman in open- option, said. 
"When I asked, 'Would you like 
to sign the AIDS quilt?' they were 
like, 'What is it?'" 

Garcia carried quilt blocks 
to each floor of Moore soliciting 
signatures, Dec. 11. Members of the 
diversity team sent the blocks to 

the national AIDS Memorial Quilt. 

Although events and the quilt 
signing were only advertised 
in Moore, Christopher Lydick, 
Moore multicultural assistant and 
junior in computer engineering, 
said all students were welcome to 
participate and sign the quilt. 

"Everybody who wants to can 
grab a pen and sign it," Lydick 
said. "It (gave) residents a chance 
to feel a part of it, and if they have 
any family members who are 
afflicted, they (could) write a little 

Although K- State students 
might not have seen the effects of 
AIDS in their daily lives, Lydick 
said it was still important to be 

"It doesn't get the attention 
that I feel it deserves," Lydick said. 
"It's definitely something that's 
slipping between the cracks, and 
it's our job as student- staff leaders 
to recognize that and bring it out 
in the open." 

by Jaci Boydston 

Ashley Boldt, sophomore in 
food and nutrition exercise sci- 
ence, helped with AIDS Awareness 
Week by making, distributing and 
wearing memorial ribbons. She 
said K- State students should not 
be sheltered from the issue. 

"We felt it was important 
because not everybody has gotten 
a lot of education about it, but it's 
everywhere," Boldt said. "Maybe 
it's not that big in Manhattan, but 
if you're going to go out in the rest 
of the world, you're going to need 
to know about it." 

Garcia said the diversity team's 
main goal for the week was to 
raise students awareness of the 
AIDS epidemic and to make them 
better, more educated people. 

"I like getting involved with 
anything that helps raise aware- 
ness of multicultural or political 
issues," Garcia said. "Anything 
I see that would help make the 
world a better place, I try to do 
something to help."

time out 
for some 


by Lindsay Porter 

Third floor coffee nights, a 
new program in Putnam Hall, 
served residents coffee, hot choco- 
late and lemonade. 

On Mondays, residents gath- 
ered to relax from studying, drink 
refreshments and interact socially, 
said Chris Rude, hall president 
and junior in animal sciences and 

"It's a social event for the 
entire hall," said Devaney Fla- 
nigan, third floor president and 
sophomore in psychology. "They 
come up, have coffee and sit 
around and talk." 

The idea started in a floor 
government meeting in Septem- 
ber. Flanigan said the third floor 
government helped organize the 


"Already at Putnam on Tues- 
days, there is a donut night, so the 
food aspect was taken," said Shan- 
non Powell, third floor resident 
and sophomore in psychology. 
"So, we thought, 'what do people 
enjoy doing?' A lot of the time 
students take a break from study- 
ing and go to Java (Espresso and 

"We thought we could save 
them time and some conve- 

Powell said she helped with 
the coffee nights to make the task 
easier for everyone. 

"There is a lot of responsibility 
going along with the set up that 
would turn into a huge project," 

Powell said. "I thought it would 
pick up slowly and gain people as 
they learned about it. It's exceeded 
my expectations — we started out 
with a lot of people." 

The relaxing atmosphere 
attracted 15-30 regulars to the 
coffee nights, Flanigan said. 

"The social aspect is the best 
part," she said. "It brings out some 
of the people not always involved 
with other things. We get a variety 
of people clumped together to 
share ideas and opinions." 

Coffee nights were funded by 
the hall's governing board. 

Flanigan said she planned to 
add variety to the coffee nights in 
future semesters through themed 
nights with flavored coffee.

Hispanic heritage celebration 

A pinata smash in the basement of Van Zile Hall, Sept. 22, coin- 
cided with National Hispanic Heritage Month in September. 

Student Peers Advocating Diversity and Educating Society, a 
diversity team at K- State, used the pinata smash as a diversity project 

Pinatas, which originated in Italy and later became a symbol of 
Mexican heritage, decorated the basement. 

Before breaking the pinatas, attendees learned the history behind 
them and some Spanish words. 

"I think that learning the history of the pinata was important," 
Natalie Oswald, sophomore in secondary education, said. "Learning 
about cultures and broadening your perspective is valuable." 

The team created the pinatas with newspaper strips, dipped in a 
mixture of water and flour, wrapped around a balloon. There were 
about five layers per balloon, which took around two hours to com- 
plete, and the pinatas dried the rest of the week. 

"I just thought it would be fun to do and have a little background

about pinatas," said Tenisha Pettus, Van Zile multicultural assistant 
and junior in psychology. "There's more to pinatas besides what they 
are now known for — as a toy for a birthday party." 

To decorate their pinatas, residents were provided with paint, 
pom-pom balls, feathers, construction paper, glitter and other items. 

"My group's pinata only took around an hour to make," Saman- 
tha Marshall, sophomore in business administration, said. "We made 
the strawberry using paint and construction paper." 
Pettus said the pinata smash was creative and fun. 
"The pinata smash had a really good turn out," Pettus said. 
"Everyone laughed and really seemed to enjoy themselves." 

Ryan Colvin, freshman in theater, said SPADES was a good team 
to be a part of. 

"I think everyone should be a part of a diversity team," he said. 
"Diversity is good. It's good to know about different cultures, orien- 
tation and experience."

holds secret 

Opening a time capsule from 1982 unsealed a 21 -year mystery at 
West Hall. The Oct. 24 event ended anticipation of residents. 

"We started (planning) back in early September," Kimberly 
Shamburg, hall president and sophomore in elementary education, 
said. "We formed a committee to make the (new) capsule (and) we 
started thinking of what we wanted to put in it." 

Opening the time capsule was written in West's constitution, but 
the capsule's location was not. 

"It hasn't been found before; we found it just this year," Kristy 
Lowrey, freshman in history, said. "We knew we had one, but no one 
knew where it was. We were kind of searching all around." 

The capsule was found in the basement. 

While some students on the committee worked with details of the 
ceremony, others designed invitations and mailed them, Lowery said. 

The guest list included the 1982 working staff, Bessie B. West's 
family, President Jon Wefald, dean of student life Pat Bosco, current 
residents and staff members from the Department of Housing and 
Dining Services, Shamburg said. 

After preparations were complete, everyone was excited and 
anticipated those who would attend the event, Lowrey said. 

"We were all speculating what they put in it," Lowrey said. "We 
were saying 'oh, I wonder if they put one of these in,' or 'I wonder if 

by Jenny Shoemaker 

they put an old baseball card and we're going to find it and it's going 
to be worth millions.'" 

The 21-year-old capsule contained: a student planner, newspaper 
clippings, bumper stickers, a "Follow Your Dreams" invitation to a 
formal, a West Hall T-shirt and a photo album. 

After opening the capsule, the committee dedicated a new time 

Items selected to be sealed for the next 20 years were: a K- State 
football, TV guide, People magazine, Time magazine, a recent news- 
paper, another West Hall T-shirt, CD with popular music and lists of 
favorite music and top movies. 

"I hope (the class of 2023) can tell from the things we put in there 
that we really enjoyed living here in West Hall," Shamburg said, "and 
that (Manhattan) was a fun community." 

The committee hoped future residents of West Hall would enjoy 
items inside the new capsule as much as current residents enjoyed the 
items left for them, Shamburg said. 

"I hope they don't look at the CD of popular music and ask, 'how 
do we play this,'" Jessica Divine, freshman in history, said. "I think 
they will get joy from looking at what was popular at this time." 

After the ceremony, refreshments were served, and the event 
concluded as the crowd sang "Happy Birthday."

Homemade peanut buster 
bars were a highly coveted treat at 
Smith Scholarship House. 

"(We have them) usually about 
two to three times a month," Mark 
Sibilla, sophomore in elementary 
education, said. "What a tasty

late cookies covered with choco- 
late sauce, caramel and peanuts. 

ferent snack while studying. The 
bars were one of the most popular 
treats, Sibilla said. 

Stephen Harris, freshman in 
civil engineering, said the bars 
tasted good and were a favorite 
among the men. 

Sibilla said the bars were a 
tradition at Smith and would be 
around for a while. 

"Once we get the new guys 
hooked on them," Sibilla said, 

Sibilla said when the treats were "then it'll definitely continue." 

made, every bar was consumed. 

"They usually don't last the 
night," he said. "They're gone 
before the dinner crew can put 
them away." 

Each night during finals week, 
Smith residents munched on a dif- 

With a new dietician planning 
the men's meals, the fall semester's 
inaugural batch of bars came about 
one month after classes began. 

Natalie Kuhlman, senior in 
food and nutrition exercise sci- 
ence, said the men constantly 

asked for the buster bars each time 
she visited the house. 

"They've been asking for them 
ever since school started," Kuhl- 
man said. "Every time I go over 
there they ask, 'when are we going 
to have buster bars?'" 

Kuhlman's position as dieti- 
cian involved planning meals for 
members of the house. 

The position provided experi- 
ence for her major, she said. 

She also said even though 
there were other, more nutritious 
desserts, that fact didn't concern 
the men. 

"They are not the most 
healthy," she said, "but the boys 
don't care about nutrition and 
calories right now."

Caring for an animal while 
living in Smurthwaite Schol- 
arship House is not difficult 
for Rebecca Jennings, junior 
in microbiology. "His name 
is Aufit, and I just came 
up with it because that's 
what the name of the air 
force base in Omaha is," 
Jennings said. "(My room- 
mates) like him pretty well, 
(but) they complain once in 
awhile because he runs on 
his wheel at night." Photo

Small animals welcome in rooms 

For those wondering what was in a name, just ask Juantwansex- 
goddess, a goldfish owned by Abby Hall, senior in human ecology 
and mass communications. 

Hall's pet was one of 15 in Smurthwaite Scholarship House, which 
allowed pets that were caged and contained in students' rooms. 

"I've lived here for four-and-a-half years," Hall said. "We 
consider Smurthwaite 'Fish Hell' because I've had four fish die, so 
we keep buying more. But we think this is the last one because it's 
survived all semester." 

Although the pets in Smurthwaite were predominantly of an 
aquatic variety, there were a few others. 

Rebecca Jennings, junior in microbiology, bought Aufit the ham- 
ster in late September. Originally from western Nebraska, she said 
she named her pet after an air force base in Omaha, Neb. 

"If they didn't accept pets, that was okay and, if they did, that was 
awesome because I've never lived without an animal," she said. "He's 
pretty minimal maintenance, but it's kind of a source of entertain- 

by Nabil Shaheen 

ment. (He's) kind of a stress reliever sometimes, because he's an 
animal and he's playing and he doesn't care that people don't get 
along or whatever. He just does his own thing." 

While it has never been a problem, students did go through a 
contract process so everyone living in the room agreed to have a pet, 
among other things. 

"Generally it's not a problem, although one year a girl had a pet 
tarantula," Kalena Schroeder, senior in modern languages, said. "We 
have a roommate contract and on there you can mark certain things, 
and you can also mark objections to pets or whatever." 

Tux, a mouse, lived with Schroeder and owner Kelly Brooks, 
junior in family studies and human services, in the room they shared 

"I don't think the pet policy is unique, as far as individual pets," 
Hall said. "The pet policy is OK because of the limitations that we 
have — you can't have anything that barks or makes noise. What we 
have works, especially with so many people in such a close space."

In addition to standard ham- 
burgers and hot dogs cooked over 
an open fire, one Acacia member 
decided to add a delicacy to the 
dinner menu at Acacia's campout, 
Oct. 17. 

While camping north of Tuttle 
Creek State Park, at Caranhan 
Creek, Nathan Mentzer, sopho- 
more in mechanical engineering, 
went squirrel hunting. 

"It was something new and 
interesting," Josh Yarrow, fresh- 
man in civil engineering, said. "It 
was tough, but tasted like chicken. 
It did — really." 

Growing up on a farm, 
Mentzer became accustomed to 
hunting and occasionally eating 

"I thought I would try to give 
the guys a taste of it," Mentzer 
said. "A lot of the guys were will- 
ing to try it, except for maybe 
three guys. A lot said it tasted 
like a combination of steak and

provided a bonding experience, 
Lucas Shivers, senior in elemen- 
tary education, said. 

"Just sitting around the 
campfire and talking with guys, 
I learned a lot more than I could 
have in other shallow conversa- 
tions," Yarrow said. "It created 
an opportunity to have in-depth 
discussions and find out more 
about each other's lives." 

Plans for the campout began 
when men from the house wanted 
to test members' characters and 
bring in the new semester. The 
campout was meant to encourage 
friendships and learn more about 
fellow members, Shivers said. 

"Once the enthusiasm for the 
event started, it attracted nearly 
everyone for many different rea- 
sons," Shivers said. "Food, foot- 
ball, fire and fellowship seemed 
to provide the strongest draw for 

The campout also provided a 
chance to enjoy the fall season.

dark stands out as the best part

of the evening," Yarrow said. "It 
allowed us to work together and 
practice teamwork skills in a high- 
adventure setting. This context 
gave us the opportunity to apply

solving strategies in a practical 

Shivers said the campout 
succeeded in allowing the men to 
come together, strengthen friend- 
ships and initiate communication. 

"Catching up with guys after 
the start of the semester helped 
to reconnect with many friend- 
ships," he said. "The time away 
from the hurried state of classes 
allowed a refreshing opportunity 
to make relationships with others 
a priority." 

Amidst bonding experiences 
and a campfire, some Acacia men 
hunted for another animal. 

"One of the guys took deer 
antlers, made them into a hat and 
ran around the forest," Mentzer 
said. "Some of the guys actually 
thought it was a deer and chased it 
for awhile."

in stvle 

Gathered around their televi- 
sion, 25 women of Alpha Chi 
Omega watched as one of their 
sisters said her wedding vows in a 
highly promoted, national broad- 
cast, Dec. 10. 

Trista Rehn, Indiana Uni- 
versity Alpha Chi, starred in the 
ABC television reality series, "The 

"It was cute; we loved it," Jes- 
sica Penland, president and senior 
in marketing, said. "It was the 
ultimate fantasy wedding." 

Although the women did not 
know Rehn was a fellow Alpha 
Chi until they began watching the 
show, it was a welcomed surprise, 
Penland said. 

"I don't know if it drew us to 
the show," she said, "but it keeps 
us interested." 

Penland said she enjoyed 

by Matt Gorney 

watching shows such as "The 
Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette.'^ 

"They're so cheesy, but you 
want them to pick the one you 
like," she said. "I liked Ryan; he 
was my favorite." 

During commercial breaks, 
the women played games such as 
guessing how many gumdrops 
were in a jar and word games, 
Penland said. Cookies and hot 
chocolate were also provided. 
Jessica Courser, junior in 
family studies and human ser- 
vices, watched the wedding with 
her sisters. 

"It was exciting — it was a 
wedding," Courser said. "I taped it 
so I could watch it again." 

She said her favorite part was 
the ceremony itself. 

"When she walked down the 
aisle. . .everyone was tearing up," 

she said. "She looked so pretty and 
Ryan was so excited to see her." 

Before choosing Ryan, Trista 
met 25 bachelors, which she nar- 
rowed down on weekly episodes of 
the show. Jennifer Mosher, sopho- 
more in family studies and human 
services, said she avidly watched 
the show. 

"I'm obsessed with 'The Bach- 
elor' and 'Bachelorette,'" Mosher 
said. "I like that kind of TV show. 
So, often (the show) came on and 
I had to watch it — because Trista 
is an Alpha Chi." 

Penland said the women 
enjoyed themselves and the eve- 
ning provided relaxation during 
dead week. 

"We were just trying to have 
some low- stress activities before 
finals," Penland said. "I think they 
all had fun."

alpha gamma rho 

showra se of 
voice talent 

by Lindsey Thorpe 

When Nicholas Levendofsky spoke, his lips did not always do the 
talking. Elmer's did. 

"Some people call him a dummy, but he doesn't like it when I call 
him that," Levendofsky, freshman in agricultural communications 
and journalism, said. "I call him my ventriloquist figure." 

Elmer, a white-haired, wrinkly- faced, old farmer dressed in 
a flannel shirt and overalls, made regular appearances for shows 
throughout Kansas and Nebraska. 

Levendofsky said he got inspiration for Elmer's personality from 
elderly men in a coffee shop he frequented. 

"He's set in his ways, like old men are," Levendofsky joked. 
"When I put him on and I go to do a show, I have to make him seem 
like he is a real person. There are times when I'll think he's a real old 
man at the coffee shop." 

Members of Alpha Gamma Rho said they were impressed with 
Levendofsky 's unusual skill. 

"It's something different," Cody Echols, senior in animal sciences 
and industry, said. "You don't come across people very often who can 
do that. It takes talent." 

Levendofsky said performing required preparation and consider- 
ation of his audience. 

"It's a painstaking process," he said. "You have to think about 
what jokes will work and won't work for your audience. I like Elmer 
because he connects with adults more, but I do a clean show. I've 
said from the beginning, I would do a show for all ages. It's a G-rated

Kent Nichols, junior in agricultural economics, said he was sur- 
prised how real Elmer seemed. 

"When he just stares at you, it's pretty weird," Nichols said. "(Lev- 
endofsky) would have him watch TV and then look at me and then go 
back to watching TV. It's freaky how life-like he can be." 

The materials and quality of Levendofsky's $500 investment 
made Elmer seem more authentic, he said. 

"His face is made out of latex, so I can make him do different 
facial expressions," Levendofsky said. "He can smile, and I can make 
him swallow his face up like the guy on the bitter-beer commercial." 

Levendofsky said he started learning how to be a ventriloquist 
when he was 7 years old after he saw Greg Claassen, K- State alumnus 
and professional ventriloquist, perform. 

"I asked him how I could do what he did, and he told me there 
isn't a school or way someone can teach you, you just have to learn on 
your own." 

Shortly after, he checked out a book from the library on ventrilo- 
quism and continued to reference it over the course of the following 

"I spent hours on end in front of the mirror learning how to 
speak without moving my jaw or lips," he said. "I started out using an 
old tube sock with a face drawn on it with marker." 

Eleven years later, Levendofsky said he would like to incorporate 
Elmer with his career. 

"I do it because I like to make people laugh," he said. "I know I'm 
doing my job when people's eyes are wide open."

for a holiday gift exchange, com- 
plete with Santa Claus, ginger- 
bread houses and several remote- 
controlled cars. 

"A lot of different chapters will 
do gift exchanges with girls in the 
house, but instead of buying gifts 
for each other, we buy gifts for the 
kids," said Amber Lafferty, junior 
in family studies and human 
services. "I like being able to bring 
a little bit of joy to somebody's 
Christmas that might not have 
gotten anything." 

by Jaci Boydston 

To buy gifts for the children, 
groups comprised of three Chi Os 
and two Sig Eps received a wish 
list for one child at the Boys & 
Girls Club. 

Meredith Jones, freshman in 
apparel marketing and design, said 
one of the best parts of the gift 
exchange was shopping for the toys. 

"We all had fun at Wal-Mart," 
Jones said. "It was like we were 
kids again. It made us feel kind of 
old, because there were all these 
toys that we didn't know about." 

After Santa (James Franko, 
Sig Ep and senior in market- 
ing) passed out gifts at the Dec. 
4 party, students and children 
played with the new toys. 

Shanlee O'Neal, junior in 
elementary education, said the 
atmosphere was hectic once all the 

toys were unwrapped. 

"It was exciting, especially when 
the kids opened up the presents," 
O'Neal said. "A lot of the boys got 
remote-controlled cars, and they 
were running them into people." 

Even during the frenzy of 
opening gifts, Jones said the 6- 
year-old boy she was paired with 
behaved well. 

"He was thankful," Jones 
said. "It was good to see that he 
was excited and that he had fun 
fooling around. It gives you that 
warm, fuzzy feeling." 

Jones said that feeling was the 
purpose of the event. 

"It makes you feel good, 
because you know they needed it," 
Jones said. "Just because I donated 
10 bucks I didn't need, I was able 
to make his Christmas."

social event 

Members of Delta Chi opted for social evening activities, which 
included eating wings as a group on Thursday nights. 

"I know the guys really get a chance to talk and have fun on Thurs- 
day nights," Matthew Wibbenmeyer, freshman in open- option, said. 

Wings night offered an opportunity for the men to socialize 
outside of the house. 

"We usually meet for wings at 5 p.m., at Joe's Tap Room and take 
as many tables up at the top as we can," Dustin Taylor, president and 
junior in mechanical engineering, said. "We can get anywhere from 
10 to 20 guys to show up." 

Taylor said men participated in social activities throughout the 
year, including swimming at Ahearn Field House and basketball. 

"One of the great things about wing night is that — unlike other 
social functions where guys tend to put more emphasis on talk- 
ing with the ladies — we really get to just sit down and bond with 
each other outside the house," Zach Hauser, sophomore in business 

by Christy Setter 

administration, said. 

Delta Chi members consciously included events that did not 
involve alcohol, because they felt it was important to create an envi- 
ronment where they could form relationships and maintain strong 
brotherhood within their house, Hauser said. 

"It is really important for any fraternity to have events that don't 
involve drinking," Taylor said. "Bringing a rushee to this sort of event 
shows them a side of the house that they may not expect to see and 
help them realize that we are not a big group of party animals who 
don't care about school. It is important to have a good time, but alco- 
hol does not always have to be involved." 

Delta Chi was aware of the advantages of these safer events, 
Hauser said. 

"I can't think of anything much safer than eating at a restaurant," 
Hauser said. "In fact, it's probably much safer than riding your bike 
or even making a snow angel."

Neighborhood clean-u 

On an unseasonably warm day, Oct. 19, the women of Delta Delta 
Delta raked colorful red, orange and yellow leaves from their neigh- 
bor's front yards. 

Noticing many surrounding neighbors were not college students, 
or had young families, the Tri-Delts hosted the second annual Neigh- 
borhood Community Service and Barbecue in an effort to clean up 
the neighborhood and get to know their neighbors. 

"We often forget that although we are only living in these (greek) 
houses for a few years, the residents around us are permanent," Kari 
Baldonado, president and senior in mass communications, said. "It is in 
our best interest to foster a positive relationship with them, and be pro- 
active rather than reactive when there is something that they don't like 

Women from Tri-Delt, in addition to members of other greek 
houses in the neighborhood, split into 17 groups of six or seven 
people. Each group was assigned a street, and volunteers helped with 
chores such as raking leaves and picking up trash. 

"(Volunteering is important) because you are helping people 
with something and making their day better," Sara Deutsch, junior 
in business administration, said. "It's important to give back to the 
community. College kids sometimes get a bad rap, so, with older 
people in the neighborhood, it's important to help out." 

Jennifer Hattan, event coordinator and senior in marketing, said 

by Jennifer Newberry 

the event was important because as neighbors to homeowners with 
families, college students needed to be understanding and respectful 
of their surroundings. 

"We need to keep things picked up and offer the help our large 
organization can contribute," she said. "It is sort of a 'many hands 
make light work' situation with neighborhood clean-up." 

After cleaning the neighborhood, all attended a barbecue. 

Cookie decorating and pumpkin carving were available for every- 
one, including neighborhood children. In charge of the pumpkin - 
carving stand, Deutsch said she found the experience to be fun. 

"The kids really enjoyed it and came up with a lot of creative 
designs," she said. "(When I signed up to help) I didn't remember 
that I hadn't carved a pumpkin before. It was messy, but luckily some 
of the kids wanted to get in there and get the seeds and insides out." 

Neighbors couldn't thank volunteers enough, Baldonado said. 

"Most of the time, the neighbors are just so excited to get to meet 
the students that they have more fun than we do," she said. "It was a 
nice day, and they were excited to get out and meet each other." 

Hattan said she received notes of thanks from appreciative neigh- 
bors regarding the event. 

"I think it lets them know that we are willing to help out any way 
we can," she said. "It gives them a chance to share any concerns they 
may have."

Art xirLa 

new canvas 

by Jenny Shoemaker 

For Homecoming Week, mem 
bers of Delta Tau Delta decorated 
their lawn as part of a new event. 

The lawn project started three 
weeks before Homecoming. It 
began with a conceptual design, 
progressed to production and 
resulted in the finished project, 
Jeff Windmeyer, junior in interior 
architecture, said. 

Paired with Alpha Gamma 
Rho and Alpha Xi Delta, the 
team received extra help from 
George Toma, professional field 
painter. George Toma was known 
throughout the NFL for his work 
designing and painting profes- 
sional fields, Ryan Weber, junior 
in marketing, said. 

To plan the project, participat- 
ing members formed commit- 
tees to discuss the budget and to 
construct ideas. 

"(We) had a grid, and it was

like a Powercat on a piece of 
paper," Brian Reif, freshman in 
business administration, said. "We 
had a vertical axis and horizontal 
axis, and then we went out in the 
yard and took measurements. We 
took string and it was like a grid 
as well. We held the piece of paper 
out in front of us and were able to 
copy the image on the grass." 

The Homecoming theme was 
Purple Reign. 

"The Homecoming commit- 
tee decided to change some of the 
Homecoming events this year," 
Reif said. "They replaced one with 
yard art. A bunch of other Big 12 
universities do it, so that's where 
we got the idea." 

The members bought supplies 
including wood, chicken wire, 
plastic and spray paint to complete 
their design. Equipment was also 

"We had pump sprayers," Reif 
said. "The rest were paints for 
turf, much like the ones they use 
for football fields like for pro or 
like the one used on the field here 
at K- State." 

Members worked from 8 a.m. 
until 4 p.m., with five people 
working at all times. At busy times 
there were as many as 10 or 12 
members working. 

What started as a Homecom- 
ing event turned into a project 
where members came together 
and took pride in something they 
did, Rief said. 

"The purpose of the art was to 
help develop excitement of Home- 
coming for those involved in the 
week," Windmeyer said, "and to 
also show visitors how well we 
look upon our school." 

The Delts lawn art project took 
third place.

Midnight fund-raiser successful 

On Nov. 15, members of Delta Upsilon cooked stacks of pancakes 
for hundreds of people. 

Charging $3 per person for a plate of pancakes, the group 
donated $650 to the Boys and Girls Club of Manhattan, Andrew 
Noonen, senior in management, said. 

To help publicize the event, members chalked on campus, handed 
out flyers, announced the fund- raiser to other greek houses and put 
an announcement in the Collegian. 

Thirty boxes of pancake mix along with syrup and sausage had to 
be purchased for the event. 

For some, it was their first time to work the pancake feed, but for 
others it was their second, third or fourth time, said Matthew Steele, 
graduate student in biological and agricultural engineering. 

"I have a knack for cooking so that's where they put me — in the 
kitchen, cooking, and showing the others the ropes," Steele said. 

Members served pancakes from midnight to 3 a.m. 

"I like that we did it late at night," Noonen said. "I think people 
liked the idea of eating pancakes and sausage at that time of night." 

A random mix of students attended the event, and members were 


by Jenny Shoemaker 

pleased with the attendance, Noonen said. 

"My favorite part was watching people scarf down pancakes," 
Griffin said. "There was a syrup drinking contest that was pretty 
gross, but fun to watch." 

Steven Copp, junior in business administration, collected money 
and watched the door to prevent people from sneaking in. 

DUs had national affiliation with the Boys and Girls Club, but the 
local organization was thankful, Lisa Salladay, resource development 
coordinator at the Manhattan Boys and Girls Club, said. 

"Towards the end of the calendar year, our budget gets quite 
lean," Salladay said. "After necessary expenses are paid to keep the 
doors open, basic program supplies — to make activities for youth 
more interesting and effective — are often what has to be cut." 

The donation from the pancake feed was used toward the pur- 
chase of supplies needed through the end of the year, Salladay said. 

"Through this wonderful financial contribution, and lots of vol- 
unteering at the club, the DUs have become a great asset to the Boys 
and Girls Club," Salladay said. "It really makes a huge difference in 
the lives of our members."

When two brothers entered a 
head-to -head competition, family 
unity could have been threatened. 

However, that was not the 
case for FarmHouse men when 
Seth Sanders and Lance Zimmer- 
man ran against each other for 
student ambassador. If anything, 
it brought all the men closer 
together, Zimmerman said. 

"It was a win -win situation," 
Zimmerman, senior in agricul- 
tural communications and jour- 
nalism, said. "You'd walk through 
the house and hear guys say, 'Well, 
I think I'm going to vote for the 
FarmHouse guy.'" 

Sanders, junior in finance, 
and Zimmerman agreed they 
remained friends during the entire 

by Jaci Boydston 

election process. On the morning 
before the winner was announced, 
Sanders had breakfast with Zim- 
merman and his parents. 

"We rode together to every- 
thing," Sanders said. "We kept 
it professional, because it's an 
important role, but we made sure 
we had fun." 

Kyle Cott, FarmHouse presi- 
dent and senior in agronomy, said 
there was no additional strain on 
the house or candidates. 

"Everybody knew that they're 
both equally qualified," Cott said. 
"I know everybody went to vote. 
They were really supportive of

game against Baylor University,

Nov. 1, Sanders was announced as 
a new student ambassador. 

"Of course, on my half, I'm 
excited," Sanders said. "I think 
Lance is pleased with the fact that 
he got as far as he did. Going in, 
we were happy that it would be 
one or the other." 

Zimmerman said he appreci- 
ated the opportunity to run. 

"When you're running against 
somebody who's one of your best 
friends, it's sort of bittersweet," 
Zimmerman said. "You know that 
they're going to do just as good 
a job as you could do. Seth and I 
were really glad we got to share 
that with each other and the guys 
in the house. I wouldn't want to 
share that with anybody but Seth."

Favorite K-State memory: The Big 12 Championship game. A 
bunch of guys in the house went, and when I was tiying to get 
into the stadium, I gave the guy my ticket and the stub wasn't on 
it, so I couldn't get in. I ended up buying another ticket for $20. 
Favorite thing to do in Manhattan: I like to go to the Chester E.

A themed philanthropy event provided seasonal activity for 
Gamma Phi Beta and benefited local children. 

Gamma Phis hosted their first "Pumpkin Chunkin," Oct. 16. 

"Basically, it was an event centered on pumpkin races," Lindsay 
Strader, philanthropy chair and senior in psychology, said. "It all 
started with the name." 

Strader said she was inspired by an event from Delaware called 
Pumpkin Chunkin. The national event featured machines specifi- 
cally designed to launch pumpkins, but Gamma Phis event was not 
that technical. 

Pumpkin Chunkin featured an eating contest, jack-o'-lantern 
carving, pumpkin bobbing and a Kool-Aid chugging contest. Six 
fraternities competed to win a 120 -pound pumpkin. 

"The most popular event was pumpkin bobbing," Strader said. 
"They had to race to get those little pumpkin gourds out of a pool of 
water. Everyone enjoyed it." 

House president and senior in finance Amanda Biggs said the

event was a success. 

Scheduled for CiCo Park, the event moved to the Gamma Phi 
dining room when rain muddied the park fields. 

Strader and Shannon Donaldson, assistant philanthropy chair, 
led the event, but all members helped. 

"Girls were assigned a team as coaches for spirit," Donaldson, 
sophomore in pre-nursing, said. "They helped get the guys in order 
and would cheer them on." 

The event raised $1,500 to be split between the Manhattan Big 
Brothers and Big Sisters Club and CampFire USA. 

Donaldson said the event raised a lot of money considering many 
philanthropy events occurred earlier in the semester. 

The women organized two philanthropy events each year, but 
participated in other greek events to share their support, Strader said. 

"It is such a part of the greek system to give back to the commu- 
nity who supports us," she said. "As college students, we do take a lot 
from the community. This is our way of giving back."

Kappa Alpha Theta: Elizabeth Browning 

Junior in elementary education 
Hometown: Madison, Kan. 

Reason for choosing Kappa Alpha Theta: I really think the 
house is really diverse. We have girls on the equestrian 
team, girls who sell Mary Kay; there's every kind of girl you 
could ask for. 

Favorite K-State memory: Even though we lost (the Fiesta 
I Bowl), it was a memorable trip.

Old, new friendships kindled 

by Lindsay Porter and Traci Rainbolt 

Beckoning the women of 
Kansas to join their holiday for 
friendship, Kappa Delta sponsored 
a self-defense seminar, Sept. 21. 

Kappa Delta chapters across 
the country began National 
Women's Friendship Day in 1999. 
The purpose was to celebrate the 
closeness and friendships among 

"It is meant to connect women 
— greek and non- greek," Leeann 
Armstrong, junior in apparel mar- 
keting and design, said. "It is for 
all ages to celebrate women." 

Gov. Kathleen Sebelius pro- 
claimed Sept. 20 to be National 
Women's Friendship Day for the 
state of Kansas, beginning in 2003. 
Kappa Deltas wanted all states 
to proclaim Women's Friendship 
Day as an official holiday, Nicole 
Hedges, junior in psychology, said.

As part of the day, Kappa 
Deltas organized the self-defense 
class for women on campus. 

"Violence against women 
has been a problem for decades," 
Armstrong said. "We wanted to 
make the women of Kansas State 
aware of violence and give them 
something to help protect them- 

The class, titled "Self- Defense 
for Women," was taught by Troy 
Auman, of the Manhattan ATA 
Black Belt Academy, and detec- 
tives Carla Swartz and Darla 
King, of the Riley County Police 

The event was free and open to 
the public. Armstrong said Kappa 
Deltas brought friends from other 
sororities to participate in the 

"My favorite part was seeing so 

many women together to celebrate 
friendship," Hedges said. "There 
were a lot of girls there, and some 
people brought their moms." 

Swartz and King provided 
information on safety and sup- 
port systems while Auman gave a 
hands-on lesson in self-defense. 

"The self-defense for women 
class was an excellent opportunity 
for women on campus to celebrate 
National Women's Friendship 
Day and to get some free infor- 
mation that would help them get 
out of a bad situation," Jennifer 
Lyon, sophomore in history, said. 
"Unfortunately, as women, safety 
is something we have to worry 
about at K- State and if we could 
help just one young lady learn 
something about protecting her- 
self or her friends, we had reached 
our goal."

She baked, listened and sewed, but Kappa Sigma's new house- 
mother was much more, Austin Petry, president and junior in 
mechanical engineering, said. 

"Once in a while she cooks brownies or cookies and leaves them 
for us," Petry said. "She had a great personality. There's nothing bad 
you can say — she's just a great person." 

In the fall, the Kappa Sigs hired a new housemother, Sue Griffitt. 

"Our old house mom decided to move on," Todd Noelle, junior 
in political science, said. "(Griffitt) is a great people person. Everyone 
here likes her." 

Noelle said Griffitt was a caring person who had an open ear. 

"She knows how to make you feel good," Noelle said. "She's just a 
wonderful lady." 

Griffitt did not live in -house, but usually made daily visits. She 
said she really enjoyed her job as housemother. 

"I love being with youth and young men," Griffitt said. "I'm 
having the time of my life. It's the best job I've ever had." 

There was not a problem with her living out- of- house, Noelle 

"It works out just fine," he said. "She has her own house which 
is much nicer than anything we can offer her. She comes when she 
pleases. She's always welcome." 

Griffitt said she reciprocated the feeling Noelle said the men had

"I think they're awesome," Griffitt said. "They're just a real caring 
group of guys." 

Noelle said she was a positive influence on the men. 

"She's motivated us," he said. "She's tried to get us to do the right 
thing and act like gentlemen." 

When Noelle was unable to return home for Thanksgiving, he 
said Griffitt invited him to share the holiday at her house. 

"She is someone to rely on and talk with, and someone to make 
the house a little more comfortable," Noelle said. "She is able to 
say the right thing to keep me going. She's one of the finest people I 

In her role as housemother, Petry said Griffitt removed some of 
the burden on the house president. 

"When you have someone who's very well organized, it takes 
pressure off of the president," Petry said. "She can pick up and do a 
lot of the little things I don't have time to do." 

Griffitt used her digital camera to keep a scrapbook for the men 
and said it ranked as one of her best experiences as housemother. 
However, she said the interaction with the men was her favorite part 
of the job. 

"They are a great group of guys and a lot of fun," she said. "I 
think they're the greatest fraternity."

lambda chi alpha 


all men 


Differentiating their house 
from other campus fraternities 
using a traditional pledge system, 
Lambda Chi Alpha used an associ- 
ate program. 

Lambda Chi was the first fra- 
ternity to implement the program 
nationally and at K- State in the 
late 1970s, Matthew A. Schwartz, 
president and senior in finance, 

"It's one of our best recruit- 
ment tools," Schwartz said. 
"Everyone truly believes in it. It 
grows mutual respect and trust." 

Both associates and active 
members completed house duties 
and had equal voting rights. 
No separation of class existed, 
Schwartz said. 

Jennifer Newberry 

"We try to allow the individual 
man to define who he is," he 
said. "We try to motivate people 
through being able to determine 
our own position (in the house)." 

The associate program helped 
the adjustment from high school 
to college, said Nathan Hughes, 
sophomore in architectural engi- 
neering and spring 2003 associate. 

"It's something I enjoyed going 
through," he said. "It's different 
in the way that it promotes more 
friendship through the house, 
because everyone's equal. No one's 
above anyone." 

The program offered unity 
among the different aged men. 

"You get to know the older 
guys better by doing things with 

them," said Andrew Hoffman, 
freshman in business administra- 
tion and fall 2003 associate. "If 
you have a problem with someone, 
you can go to them without the 
fear of hazing." 

The program did nothing but 
good things, Schwartz said. 

"I wish all fraternities would 
do (the associate program)," Hoff- 
man said. "It would help the greek 
community as a whole." 

Students responded positively 
to Lambda Chi's associate pro- 
gram, Hoffman said. 

"Some friends are think- 
ing of unpledging and coming 
to Lambda Chi Alpha," he said. 
"They like the equality and no

sister noon 

Even though there was no 
mechanical bull, the women of 
Sigma Lambda Gamma were still 
pleased with the Union Program 
Council's Nov. 14 After Hours. 

The sorority hosted the event 
and, although their plans to have 
a mechanical bull were thwarted, 
they entertained students with 
salsa dancing, ceramics, free chili 
and the movie "Dance With Me." 

Rebecca Triana, president and 
junior in social work, said she liked 
sharing her culture with students who 
might not have been familiar with it. 

"(Our After Hours event) 
shows some of our Hispanic 
culture," Triana said. "I don't 
think there are as many Hispanic 
students here as are on other cam- 
puses, but it's growing." 

Sigma Lambda Gamma, 
founded nationally in 1990, was 

traditionally a Latina sorority, but 
members were quick to state the 
group was open to all women. 

"The mission is to promote 
diversity," Triana said. "A lot of 
people think that because it's histor- 
ically Latina, we only have Hispanic 
members, but we have all kinds." 

Nine active members com- 
prised the sorority, and Triana 
said they shared a close bond. 

"It's like a real family," Triana 
said. "With these girls, we're like 
real sisters. We know everything 
about each other, and we can 
depend on each other." 

Isabel Amaya, vice president 
and senior in microbiology, said 
the group's small size helped 
members get to know one another. 

"It allows us to be closer," 
Amaya said. "With large sorori- 
ties, you may not get the chance to 

by Jaci Boydston 

know all your sisters one -on -one. 
These girls are my life -long sisters." 

Besides a shared bond, Amaya 
said members tried to support all 
multi- cultural organizations, such 
as Hispanic American Leadership 
Organization and Native Ameri- 
can Student Association. 

"It's a way to learn different 
things from different people," 
Amaya said. "It's important to 
learn from one another. 

Alixandra DeGuzman, senior 
in management, said the women 
worked hard to make a name for 
their sorority, which had only been 
at K- State since 1994. 

"It's just amazing how we've 
transformed ourselves," DeGuz- 
man said. "No one used to know 
who we were, and there are still 
some people who don't. That's 
probably why we work so hard."

Laughing at a joke made 
by a friend, Isabel Amaya, 
senior in microbiology, 
enjoys the activites during 
K-State After Hours, Nov. 
14. Sigma Lambda Gamma 
helped sponsor the event, 
which included ceramic 
painting and Salsa dance 
lessons. Sigma Lambda 
Gamma was traditionally a 
Latina sorority, but Amaya 
said they strived for diver- 
sity. "We try to branch out 
to women of all ethnicities," 
Amaya said. "We come 
from very different back-

phi delta theta - manhattan 

Long-distance travelers 

J \_ 

Phi Delta Theta alumni flew in from all over the country, bring- 
ing wives and suitcases for Homecoming week. 

"The alumni were in charge of contacting their pledge broth- 
ers and inviting them to the event," Jason D. Miller, sophomore in 
construction science and management, said. "It was a time for them 
to regroup." 

The alumni were responsible for planning dinner and a reception 
at the house. 

"They put together a package for the hotel room and to go to the 
game where they could all sit together," Michael Welch, senior in 
marketing, said. "They went to the (K- State) Alumni Center with 
their wives (for dinner) and we had a reception (at the house) and 
showed them our new house." 

Current house members had pre -event responsibilities. 

"We mainly did a bunch of cleaning," Jared Kenney, freshman 
in chemical engineering, said, "(We) bought some food and got the 
tailgate ready." 

The night before the Homecoming game, Nov. 1, alumni attended 
a dinner at the Alumni Center. 

by Jenny Shoemaker 

"It was really cool to have them all come back," Miller said. 
"Some were from Chicago and, really, just all over." 

After the game, alumni and current members went back to the 
house for the reception, Kenney said. 

After touring the new Phi Delt house, members, past and present, 
gathered and shared stories, Welch said. 

"They told jokes," Welch said. "Some of them picked on the same 
guys they picked on back when they were in school." 

The alumni told current members about their traditions. One 
tradition was Flush Bowl, an event where the Phi Delts joined other 
greek houses to play a game of football, Miller said. 

"Their pledges would have to dress up as cheerleaders," Miller 
said. "Whoever held it that year would have a big dinner, (and they 
would) nominate a Flush Bowl queen. The trophy was an old toilet 
bowl — it was a big thing." 

The alumni event was a good time for everyone, Miller said. 

"My favorite part was hearing the old stories, and what they used 
to do 40 or 50 years ago," Kenney said. "It was interesting to know 
what has changed."

phi delta theta - salina 

A scenic landscape turned into 
a fog-engulfed, ghost- infested 
trail after dark. 

K- State -Salina's Phi Delta 
Theta chapter teamed with the 
Salina Student Governing Associa- 
tion to organize the third Haunted 
Hike, the week of Halloween. 

Haunted Hike, an outdoor 
haunted house at Indian Rock 
Park, featured bush-lurking scar- 
ers, maniacs with chainsaws and 
dummies dropping from trees. 

"We make it dark and scary," 
Kevin Gorman, senior in com- 
puter science technology, said. 
"We turn what is a park in to a 
huge haunted hike." 

The hike covered about one- 
half mile around the park with 
sheets covering lights and signs to 
make the trail as dark as possible, 
Gorman said. 

by Lindsay Porter 

Doug Zerr, junior in mechani- 
cal engineering technology, said 
this hike was the best ever. 

"It was bigger and scarier," 
Nathan Gorrell, junior in airway 
science, said. "We always hope 
to make one year better than the 

After an absence in 2002, the 
men successfully returned scare 
thrillers to Indian Rock. 

"The house was perfect for a 
haunted house, but it wasn't really 
safe for the public," Gorman said. 
"This year was a supersonic build- 
ing year because we brought it 
back to the park." 

Phi Delts created plans, 
worked as scarers and guided 
groups of community members 
through the hike, Gorrell said. 

Although the event was 
funded through SGA, many of 



the scares were homemade to save 
cost, Gorrell said. 

Attendance each night 
exceeded the capacity for timely 
hikes. Gorrell said entrance lines 
were cut early some nights because 
too many people wanted to hike 
before closing. Proceeds from the 
week were donated to the United 

Gorrell and Gorman agreed 
helping with the hike created a 
positive view for their fraternity. 

"We didn't drop the Phi Delt 
name," Gorman said, "but when 
people find out that we're fra- 
ternity guys doing this, it takes 
away the negative connotation of 
fraternities drinking all the time. 
Especially in Salina, we're the first 
fraternity in Salina. It gives a good 
connotation of our fraternity with 
community service."

phi gamma delta 

Ft. Rilev children receive gifts 

Reaching out to families based 
at Fort Riley, Phi Gamma Delta 
hosted Christmas activities for 
children of deployed soldiers. 

"We finally came up with the 
idea to throw them a Christmas 
party because it would allow the 
children to interact with young 
adult males," Kevin York, senior 
in marketing, said. "Some of the 
children have been without their 
fathers for almost a year, making 
it very tough for their mothers." 

Together with Delta Delta 
Delta, Fiji coordinated activities 
for families of the 5th Infantry 

"At this Christmas party, we 
had quite a few activities set up for 
the children, so the moms could 
take a break for a while," York 

said. "The activities we had set 
up were relay races, a moon walk, 
bean bag tosses, pin the nose on 
a snowman, basketball, crafts, 
cookie decorating and — the 
children's favorite — pictures with 

Caleb Amyot, junior in busi- 
ness administration, said the 
Christmas party allowed members 
of Fiji and Tri-Delt to experience 
something new and different 
during the holiday season. 

"This activity was worth- 
while," Amyot said. "I speak for all 
of us when I say that anyone who 
risks their life day-in and day- 
out for the well being of others 
deserves support and sincere 
appreciation. Ninety- five percent 
of the families who attended the 

by Christy Setter 

party had been without their loved 
ones for some time. Fiji saw the 
event as an excellent opportunity 
to support our troops by giving 
the adults a break from life at the 
base and to provide the children 
with a positive and fun Christmas 

The Christmas party was 
an overall success and members 
hoped it would eventually become 
an annual event for both houses, 
York said. 

"I would definitely participate 
in the Fort Riley Christmas party 
again," said Erin O'Connor, Tri- 
Delt member and senior in human 
ecology. "Everyone had a blast 
playing with little kids, visiting 
with the mothers and spreading 
holiday spirit before break."

Punching, kicking and safety tips were self-defense techniques 
Pi Beta Phi members learned when more than 100 members partici- 
pated in a self-defense class, Dec. 7. 

Lindsay Miller, senior in business education, and Meaghan 
Malone, senior in marketing, worked together to organize the class. 
Miller said safety and defense education were important. 

"We did it to give the girls knowledge," Miller said. "It would help 
make them feel confident when they were out, knowing they could 
protect themselves." 

Kathleen Hoffman, president and senior in kinesiology, said self- 
defense was important. 

"Self-defense is an important thing, in general, for college women 
to know," Hoffman said. "College women are in situations day-in 
and day- out. College women are in danger more than they realize."

The women learned Krav Maga — a practical form of self-defense 
with moves based on natural instincts. An instructor from the Krav 
Maga and Fitness Center in Lenexa, Kan., taught the class. 

The class consisted of three basic skills: kicking moves, how to 
get out of a strangle situation and how to punch and hurt an attacker 
without injury. The instructor provided advice about being safe. 

The class allowed members to learn self-defense with friends. 

"We all partnered up," Hoffman said. "It was fun to work with 
our friends in using the skills we learned." 

Miller said members enjoyed the class and gained beneficial 

"When we all left and went back to the house, everyone talked

Funds for the Pi Kappa 
Phi rose garden were the 
largest gift donated to the 
university from a single 
organization. The rose 
garden, also a memorial 
to their late house mother 
Claudene Pillsbury, held 
special meaning for the 
members of Pi Kap. 
"I think our efforts with 
the rose garden shows a 
different side to us as a 
fraternity. It highlights our 
concentration and devotion 
to philanthropy," Adam 
Harms, junior in business 
administration, said. "It's 
just one way that Pi Kap is 
able to show our appre- 
ciation to not only those 
involved in our fraternity, 
but to the whole community 
as well." Photo by

Ten lifelong friends became brothers when they pledged Sigma 
Alpha Epsilon. Out of 40 SAE members, 10 were from Buhler High 
School and the surrounding area. 

Nathan Hall, former recruitment chair and 2001 Buhler High 
School alumnus, said he sought the same qualities in new members 
that his friends carried. 

"I look for all-around good guys — guys who are personable, can 
talk to people, who work hard, get good grades and would be an asset 
to the house," Hall, president and junior in biology, said. "I knew 
(friends from high school) would bring quality to the house and help 
influence others." 

Their influence did not go unnoticed by other members. 

"I think they think it's neat," Hall said. "They wish they had 
friends from their high schools attending the same college and in the 
same house." 

Friendships started early in life between some of the members, 
but the circle of friends continued to grow after high school. 

"I think the other members make more of an effort," Grady Wray, 
junior in business administration, said. "They know we're all good 
friends and they want to be a part of it. I hope everyone sees it as a pos- 
itive opportunity for the entire house to get together as an entire group 
and bond with activities like intramurals, school and social events." 

The Buhler boys knew one other well, even through sports, Wray said. 

"It's nice as far as intramurals," Wray said. "I'm playing with the 
same guys I played with in high school." 

The Buhler men played well together but other men were also 
strong competitors, which, when combined, created a better and 
stronger team, Brandon Ward, junior in biology, said. 

The men had been friends through many aspects of their lives, 
the SAE house represented their newest foundation, Hall said. 

Occasionally, other SAE members gave the "Buhler boys" a hard 
time saying, "another guy from Buhler," Ward said. 

"I'm sure they thought it was going to be a Buhler- fest," W Parker 
Armstrong, junior in business administration, said, "but once they got to 
know us, and we got to know them, everyone came together." 

Hall and friends helped new and old members become 
acquainted, Armstrong said. 

"I'm a shy person," Ward said. "I was more comfortable because I 
had my friends with me. Other members feel the same way." 

Armstong said it was great to have friends around during the 

"We have all been friends for a long time," Armstrong said. "It 
helps to have them here." 

This tight- knit friendship helped pull the entire house together 
by demonstrating a brotherly example that invites other members to 
unite, Ward said.

Chi Omega, members of 
Sigma Phi Epsilon adopted 
children from the Boys and 
Girls Club and gave them 
Christmas presents. In the 
tradition of past chapter 
presidents, James Franko, 
senior in marketing, dressed 
up as Santa Claus and read 
"Twos the Night Before 
Christmas" and then passed 
out gifts to eager youngsters 
at the Chi Omega house, 
Dec. 4. "(The Sig Eps)

especially when they have

Reason for choosing Sigma Chi: When I was rushing, the

cared. They're good guys. I had a lot of fun first semester 

being in the house. 

Favorite K-State memory: I'd say the tailgating parties before

Early admittance for greek women 

Due to the Veterinary Scholars Early Admission Program, building 
an impressive resume to gain entrance into the College of Veterinary 
Medicine was not a concern for Megan Montgomery and Carly Waugh, 
juniors in animal science and industry and Sigma Kappa members. 

Established in 1999, the program allowed high school students 
with an ACT score of 29 or greater, or a 1280 or greater combined 
SAT score, and who are admitted to K- State, to apply and interview 
to reserve a place in the College of Veterinary Medicine. 

"We interview those freshman undergraduates who apply 
somewhere in the first three or four weeks of classes," Bonnie Rush, 
professor of clinical sciences, said. "We've taken as few as 11 and as 
many as 22." 

While in the program, students were invited to the college to 
meet and mingle with other students in the program. 

"We get together with the associate dean and everyone else in the 
program and do neat presentations," Waugh said. "Last semester, it 
was on presidential pets and how they affected presidential cam- 
paigns, which was really cool because I like politics, too. It's kind of 
a different aspect of veterinary medicine, but it's a fun way to get to 
know each other." 

Being in the early admit program allowed students to focus on 
becoming a more well-rounded student rather than concentrating on 
taking higher-level courses, Waugh said. 

"I'm looking to take French classes and I'm probably going to

end up double majoring in that," she said. "I'm able to take classes I 
normally wouldn't be able to take. I don't have to cram all my pre-vet 
courses in and get a double major in biology and chemistry just to 
impress and get into vet school." 

The only two greek early admit students in the 2006 class, Waugh 
and Montgomery did not know each other before pledging Sigma 

"We didn't know it until we both had our interviews and got in," 
Montgomery said. "It was really cool because we might live together 
when we are in vet school." 

Montgomery said the sorority would make her more responsible 
when it came time for classes in the veterinary college. 

"There are a lot of time commitments that come with being in 
a sorority, there are a lot of events that you need to go to and little 
things that you have to do," Montgomery said. "It gives you more 
time to grow up and get ready to get settled down and work really 

Rush said the college put a lot of emphasis on leadership skills 
and communication skills, and the greek system provided that. 

"(The system) contributes to individuals taking on leadership 
roles, working together, developing good communication skills and 
organizing events," she said. "Those things are strongly linked to suc- 
cess in the profession and success as a veterinarian student. I think 
it's a valuable thing."

The Sunset Revival brought 
revitalizing energy to Sigma Nu, 
May 3. 

The music festival, which 
lasted from 1 to 11 p. m., was 
organized by Sigma Phi Epsilon 
and Sigma Nu. 

Sunset Revival had been an 
annual tradition between the two 
fraternities since the early '90s. 

"One theory to why it is called 
Sunset Revival is because it takes 
place on Sunset Avenue and it is 
held at the end of the year," Jason 
Beahm, junior in mass communi- 
cations, said. "It's an opportunity 
to revive everyone's spirits." 

by Natalie Gervais 

The music line-up included 
local bands Lucas & Joe, Gang of 
Hours, Lucky Joan, Ten Til Blue, 
Tripwire and Sun Cured Red — a 
band that traveled from Okla- 
homa to play for the festival. 

"Outdoor shows have more of 
a party atmosphere," said Nicholas 
Schober, K- State graduate and 
lead guitar for Tripwire. "It's a 
different sort of feeling than most 
shows we play." 

Money to pay for the bands, 
food, drinks and other expenses 
came from a $5 entrance fee and 
selling T-shirts, beer and food. 

A portion of the proceeds went 



to a scholarship fund in the name 
of a Sigma Nu alumnus who died 
of lung disease. 

"Regardless (of) whether we 
make or lose money, we will begin 
a scholarship fund," Beahm said. 

Although rain was expected 
throughout the day, the Sigma 
Nu hill kept busy with excited 

"It is great to get everyone 
together and just have a good 
time," Kelly Ernst, senior in mass 
communications, said. "I have 
seen some people here that I have 
not seen or spoken with in a long

While some men assumed women did not play football, the men 
of Tau Kappa Epsilon had evidence to the contrary. 

To raise money for their philanthropy, the National Alzheimer's 
Association, TKEs split into groups of five and six to coach powder- 
puff football teams comprised of women from 11 sororities. The cost 
was $90 per team. 

TKEs organized every aspect of the event, including purchasing 
equipment, setting the schedule, coaching and refereeing. 

"It's kind of a lot of work, but it's worth it," Jon Hjetland, 
sophomore in agribusiness, said. "It's good to go out there and have 
relationships between our house and the different sororities and play 
some football." 

Along with practicing coaching skills, TKEs formed friendships 
with sorority women. 

"I know all the girls out there," said Bradley Simmons, junior in 
business administration and Kappa Delta coach. "They wanted me to 
be the sweetheart of their sorority." 

Simmons said his team kept the mood light. 

"They're out there to have fun," Simmons said. "Basically, I'm 
there to support. I dress up in goofy costumes. I got a mullet wig and 
a jean jacket for the game tonight. I try to make it fun for the girls." 

Randy Eilert, senior in biology and Alpha Xi Delta coach, had his

own way of making games and practices enjoyable. 

"Sometimes it's hard to remember plays, and it makes it a lot 
easier if (we) come up with something to make the play more excit- 
ing," Eilert said. "Some of the names for defensive plays are actually 
sexual diseases." 

Simmons said most of the women vocally supported their team. 

"Usually, they get pretty into it," Simmons said. "They're cheer- 
ing if they're not playing. All of the sororities have their little chants. 
It's actually kind of cool when you get a bunch of them out there and 
they're all in unison." 

Cheers were not the only things heard on the football field during 
powder-puff games. Eilert said trash talk added to the excitement. 

"It's competitive, and, at the same time, it's fun," Eilert said. "You 
give each other a lot of crap. Sometimes it gets a little rough, because 
the referees are guys in the house. So when you would normally keep 
your mouth shut about a call, you yell anyway because the referee's 
your friend." 

Trash talk aside, Simmons said one of the main goals of the 
powder-puff league was to have fun. 

"Sports are important, but it's not the end of the world if you 
don't win," Simmons said. "As long as they're having fun with it, I'm 
having fun with it."

Homecoming funds donated 

During Homecoming week, Theta Xi led an effort to give back to 
the community. 

Theta Xi, Delta Delta Delta and Sigma Nu donated a portion of 
their float budget to the Boys and Girls Club of Manhattan. 

The original float budget for the houses was $1,250. The houses 
decided to use less money on the float and promote a good cause. 
They spent $564 on their float and donated $600 to the club. 

"The donation limited the amount of pomp we could use, but we 
were not concerned," Ryan Stephans, junior in history education and 
Theta Xi secretary, said. "Our goal was to make a substantial contri- 
bution to the club and not to worry about whether or not our float 
was of high quality." 

Donating money to the club was new to the fraternity, Stephans said. 

"We have not made this type of contribution before, though we 
annually donate money to the Multiple Sclerosis Society to find a 
cure for MS with our annual Miracle Mile philanthropy," Stephans 
said. "We chose to make the donation because we felt this was the 
right thing to do. So much money is spent on floats every year and 
they get torn down in a few days. We thought this was a better use of 
our funds." 

The donation came at the perfect time because the club's budget 
was depleted toward the end of the year, said Lisa Salladay, resource 
development coordinator for the Boys and Girls Club.

"The money that comes in has to keep our facility running, so 
supplies and snacks for the kids are secondary to this," Salladay said. 
"It is great because all of the money that they gave us went directly 
into the kids' programs." 

Members from each of the three houses presented the donation in 
person, after the Homecoming parade. 

"When the house decided to donate, we felt that it was best to 
present the money in person because it makes it more personal for 
both parties," Jerrad Boyle, sophomore in architectural engineering, 
said. "We got to see where the money was going, just as the Boys and 
Girls Club got to see who was making the donation." 

Salladay said she was especially impressed by the personal touch 
students gave the donation. 

"It was Halloween and they brought a big plastic jack-o'-lantern 
full of candy for the kids," Salladay said. "They met with the director 
and I and handled the donation in a very personal way." 

Stephens looked forward to future philanthropic gestures. 

"We will still have our annual Miracle Mile philanthropy in 
the spring where we will try to make a mile -long length of quarters 
on campus and then donate that money to the Multiple Sclerosis 
Society," Stephens said. "As for next year's Homecoming, we hope 
this will become an annual tradition at Theta Xi, and will push our 
Homecoming partners next year to help us in this effort."

Braving the summer heat, 
K- State -Salina students made new 
friends at Jumpin' Joes Entertain- 
ment Center, as a part of Wildcat 
Welcome Week. 

One of the more highly 
attended events, the night at 
Jumpin' Joe's, Aug. 25, was designed 
to benefit students, Shana Warken- 
tine -Meyer, Assistant Director for 
College Advancement, said. 

"It introduces the students to 
something in the community," she 
said. "It's a free opportunity and 
they get to meet other students." 

A popular aspect of the night 
was go-karts. Warkentine- Meyer 
said it was not usual for half the 
students to get kicked off the track 
for misbehaving. 

"I was playing with the gov- 
ernor in the back of the go-kart 
to increase speed," said Laramie 
Coker, freshman in electronic and 
computer engineering technology. 
"I wanted to go faster because I 
was trying to beat my roommate, 
but I got kicked off the track." 

Not fazed by being removed 
from the track, Coker said he 
would find something else to do. 

"College is fun so far," Coker 
said. "I've only been here a couple 
of days, but it's long enough to get 
into trouble." 

Students also played miniature 
golf, video games, jumbo boxing 
and laser tag. 

"Our (laser tag) team smoked 
them," Ross Niedbalski, freshman 

in professional pilot, said. "We used 
the camouflage technique. We're all 
hunters on the team, so we know 
how to hide. We waited until they 
shot someone and we shot them." 

Activity Chair David Swanson, 
senior in airway science, planned 
the Jumpin' Joe's event. 

"I knew the last three activity 
chairs personally," he said. "I saw 
what was done before and had to 
top it. Also, I try to find out what 
people want to do, and I do it." 

Free for students, the event 
cost was $2,000, paid for by Salina 
Student Governing Association. 

"People keep asking me how 
much this event costs," Swanson 
said. "(It's) absolutely worth the

With fall came football season, and with football season came 
fans who wanted to tailgate. For first-year students at the College of 
Veterinary Medicine, those fans meant $13,500 would be added to 
their treasury. Between 215 and 250 fans parked in the area north of 
the veterinary medicine college. 

The incoming students were given the opportunity to take control 
of the parking lot and use it as a fund -raiser for their first year. 

"Basically there is so much stuff thrown at the freshmen their 
first year, it's hard to get some fundraisers set up," Chris Payton, 
president of the class of 2007, said. "This is a way that enables us, as a 
freshman class, to start our fund without having to go out and do a 
lot of fundraising our first year." 

The class of 108 students took a majority vote to use the parking 
project as a fund-raiser. They were asked to sign up to volunteer their 
time. About 20 students were needed to volunteer for each home 
football game. 

The preparations began Friday afternoons before the home games 
with three or four people staking out the boundaries for parking. 
Game day was divided into two shifts of 10 people each. The first 
shift started four hours before kickoff and lasted two hours. They 

by Alicia Gilliland 

collected money and directed parking. The second shift worked for 
the next two hours. After the game started, two people monitored 
the parking lot every hour to keep problems from arising. After the 
game, three or four people directed traffic and cleaned up the area. 

They started the season charging $5 a car for parking, but real- 
ized everyone else around charged $10 a car. So the class discussed it 
and raised prices. 

The fund -raiser was a great opportunity for the students to make 
money, but it also gave the class the chance to get to know each other 

"I feel that we were a very fortunate class to be able to do this 
fund -raiser," said Tara Ehling, first year veterinary medicine student 
and fund-raiser chairman. "It went over so well that it took pressure 
off of us as far as coming up with more fund-raising ideas. It was 
also a great experience for everyone to get together in small groups 
outside of class and get to know each other." 

The class will continue fund-raising for their four years at the 
college. The money raised will go to fees, a traditional party put on 
during the sophomore year, senior banquet and the gift they will give 
to the school in their senior year.

Ranging from eight to 20 
members at any given semester, 
the K- State Flea Team was the 
largest flea research group in the 
world. Formally, the group was 
known as Flea Farm when it origi- 
nated in 1990 and was led by Dr. 
Dryden, professor in veterinary 
parasitology. Students involved 
with the research group wanted a 
more official name, and became 
known as Flea Team. 

The Flea Team consists of 
students, graduates and faculty 
members. Also collaborating with 
K- State's Flea Team are doctors, 
around the world. The group 
research is based on the biol- 
ogy, behavior and control of fleas 
infesting cats and dogs.

In addition, there has been 
research conducted on top-of-

rppn xi i.i it e 
tor faith 

by Tina Deines 

Brought together by Catholic 
backgrounds, 21 men lived their 
faith as members of The Catholic 
Household of Chi Rho. 

Chi Rho began in 2001 when 
nine men from Phi Kappa Theta, a 
Catholic fraternity, diverged. 

The reason for the departure 
was to create a house focused 
on Catholicism. D. Travis Gear, 
junior in history and outreach 
chair, said the decision to separate 
from the Phi Kaps was difficult, 
but there was a division within the 
men about their beliefs. 

Gear said despite initial ani- 
mosity between the groups, there 
was no longer a problem. 

"We're both Catholic house- 
holds," Gear said. "There's good 
men over there and I would never 
speak against any of them." 

Chi Rho was established to 
give Catholic men a place to come 
together and live their faith and not 
be afraid of spirituality, Gear said.

the first Catholic household on a 
college campus, they were the first 
he had ever heard of at a secular 

Chi Rho operated like a fra- 
ternity except Chi Rho's central 
function was their faith. 

"It's very different in the fact 
that, obviously, in a fraternity you 
don't have the same spirituality 
you would have here," Gear said. 

The community consisted 
of four apartments, each with 
separate features such as a chapel 
area, study room, television room, 
kitchen and sleeping rooms. 
Members attended meetings on 
Wednesdays, as well as Monday 
Mass in the chapel area. 

Spirituality, community life, 
academics, fellowship and out- 
reach were Chi Rho's five princi- 
ples, and the men had a chairman 
for each. 

An important attribute of Chi 
Rho, Gear said, was the ability to 
propel men spiritually. 

"You can't become a Catholic 
in four or five years at K- State," he 
said, "but we can hopefully build 
upon the foundation (we were) 
given earlier." 

Brent Depperschmidt, junior 
in economics, said the most ben- 
eficial part of Chi Rho was shared 
values between men. 

"(The best advantage) is just 
the opportunity to live with a 
group of men who share my 
ideas," Depperschmidt said. 
"(They) are working toward a 
common goal while living in col- 

Matthew Stadler, sophomore 
in park management and con- 
servation, said the most advan- 
tageous aspect was the support 

"Being able to continue to 
grow in my faith and going 
through the challenges together 
(helps)," he said. "In such a secu- 
lar campus, it's nice to have the 
support from somewhere."

Favorite thing to do in Manhattan: Hang out with my friends

Favorite K-State memory: Beating Nebraska in 2001. It 
was amazing. It was a feeling that 111 probably never feel ir

Oct. 16, as leaves fell all

If you think the tests in col- 
lege are tough, wait until your 
first job interview. Last year, 
America's businesses lost 

$60 billion to drugs. 

So this year, most of the 
Fortune 500 will be administer- 
ing drug tests. Failing the test 

means you won't be considered 
for employment. 

After all, if you're into drugs, 
how smart can you be.

No surprise that there is an instant chemistry between the athletic 
and youthful Asia Regional Manager of Chevron Phillips Chemical 
Company LLC, Dr Mark E Lashier and the fast-paced city of Singapore. 

"Singapore is known for its economic progress, cultural harmony and 
social stability. So when I was offered a job here, I did not hesitate!" 

Lashier is a sportsman, scientist and inventor rolled into one - indeed 
a modern renaissance man. In the course of his career, the energetic 
chemical engineer had patented several ingenious ideas, leading to 
his American peers voting him Young Engineer of the Year. 

Lashier's wanderlust has taken him around Asia, where he has seen 
first-hand the increasing sophistication of the chemicals industry in 
many countries. But he gives Singapore full marks for its holistic 
approach to developing world-class infrastructure, offering excellent 
education and attracting top-notch global talent. 

If you want to be a catalyst in creating and shaping dynamic industries, 
visit today. It could be the spark to ignite 
a dazzling career.

organize resources and focus them where they're needed most. Especially fighting

more by teaming up with a community coalition. It's really simple. Just go to or call 1-877-KIDS-313 to contact a community 
coalition in your area. They'll tell you exactly how your group can help. You'll be 
surprised at what you have to offer. And how much you can accomplish.
